Genotypic and phenotypic correlations and path coefficient analysis were studied among ten quantitative traits in 200 scented rice genotypes including one non-scented check Ratna. The grain yield/plant showed significant positive correlation with plant height, panicle number per plant, penicle length, total number of spikelets/panicle and total number of grain/panicle at both genotypic and phenotypic levels. Path coefficient analysis revealed that panicle number per plant, total number of grains/panicle and 1000-grain weight.playedan important role in the improvement of grain yield in scented rice
