Abstract

The aim of the present study was to generate information on interrelationships of some important productivity elements, direct and indirect effects of these characters on fruit yield of 1 plant in coriander. The study was conducted in the Institute of Agriculture - Karnobat, during the period 2006-2008 and included 81 coriander accessions. Phenotypic correlations of fruit weight per plant were highly significant and positive with number of branches per plant, number of umbels per plant, number of fruits per 1 umbel, fruit weight per umbel and 1000-fruits weight. Maximum direct contribution to fruit weight per plant was made by 1000-fruits weight, followed by fruit weight per umbel and number of umbels per plant. Therefore, these traits can be used as selection criteria to increase plant yield in coriander.
