Abstract

Path coefficient and variability studies in thirty genotypes of pearl millet revealed high values of phenotypic and genotypic coefficients of variation and genetic advance for grain yield/plant. There was positive association of grain yield/plant with plant height, tillers/plant and ear weight, and negative association with days to ear emergence. Path analysis revealed direct contribution of tillers/ plant and ear weight 10 grain yield and indirect contribution to grain yield of ear length and girth through ear weight.
