Abstract:
An experiment was carried out on study of path analysis and characters association in 12 genotypes of at Department of Horticulture, vegetable research farm, Allahabad School of Agriculture, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad (U.P.) during rainy season 2014 in randomized block design with three replications. Observations were recorded on 16 characters of cucumber. Correlations study revealed that phenotypic correlation coefficient was slightly higher than corresponding value of genotypic correlation for majority of the characters. Correlation study revealed that the fruit yield per vine shows positive and significant correlation with branches per vine followed by fruit per vine, female flower per vine, fruit weight, fruit diameter, TSS, vine length, vitamin ‘C’ and fruit length and highest negative and significant correlation with days to first fruit harvest followed by nodes number at which first appear of female flower, nodes number at which first appear of male flower, days to first appearance of male flower, days to first appearance of female flower at both genotypic and phenotypic levels. Path analysis study revealed that male flowers per vine has showed highest positive direct effect on fruit yield per vine followed by fruits per vine, vitamin ‘C’, fruit weight, branches per vine and female flowers per vine whereas, TSS and nodes number at which first appear of female flower and showed highest negative direct effect on the fruit yield per vine.
