Correlation and path coefficient analysis in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.)

Sangamesh Nevani and O Sridevi
Sixty genotypes of tomato were evaluated to estimate the nature and magnitude of association of different characters with fruit yield and yield attributing traits. The experiment was laid out during kharif 2018 in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. In order to find out the degree and direction of relationship of the yield contributing characters with yield and inter relationship between them, correlation analysis was carried out for all traits under investigation. Fruit yield per plant exhibited high significant positive correlations with plant height, number of clusters per plant, number of fruits per plant, average fruit weight, polar length of fruit, equatorial length of fruit, pericarp thickness, number of locules per fruit and titrable acidity. It also registered significant negative correlation with days to 50% flowering, days to 1st harvest, number of primary branches per plant, number of fruits per cluster, total soluble solids (TSS), pH of fruit juice and shelf life. Path analysis revealed that number of fruits per clusters and average fruit weight had positive direct effects on fruit yield while these traits recorded positive correlation with yield.
