Abstract:
Twenty-five genotypes including one check were studied for character association for yield and its components. Correlation study estimates gives some idea as to the relative importance of each of the components to final seed yield, although it is an established fact that nature and magnitude of associations would vary with the composition of the material. In present study simple correlation co-efficient were estimated at both the phenotypic and genotypic levels in twenty-five genotypes. It was observed that the magnitude of association varied among the genotypes. Correlation studies revealed that, seed yield per plant had significant positive association with plant height, number of capsules per plant, number of seed per capsule, capsule length, capsule width and 1000 seed weight and non-significant positive association with number of primary branches per plant point out that the importance of these characters in selection programme for selecting high yielding genotypes in sesame.
