Correlation study for fruit yield and its attributing traits in segregating generation (F2) of Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.)
Devendra Upadhyay, Dhananjay Sharma and Neeraj Shukla
Brinjal is an important vegetable can grow through the year. Fruits found in varying colours like purple, green, white and their combinations. Rich in medicinal properties as well as broad genetic base. The experiment was conducted during Rabi 2020-21 at the Research cum Instructional Farm, Dau Kalyan Singh College of Agriculture and Reseach station Bhatapara, I.G.K.V., Chhattisgarh. Correlation study was estimated in twenty four F2 population, where there is high level of segregation obtained. Mean sum of square due to genotype found highly significant for all the traits. Genotypic correlations were higher than the phenotypic correlation coefficients indicating the strong association between characters. Fruit yield per plant showed highly significant and positive correlation with number of primary branches, number of cluster per plant, number of flower per inflorescence, number of fruits per cluster, number of fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit girth, average fruit weight, pericarp thickness and number of fruit per plant per picking at both phenotypic and genotypic levels.
