An investigation was carried out in pigeon pea to understand the association among the yield
components and their direct and indirect effects on the seed yield. Character association studies
indicated that number of pods, secondary branches and primary branches per plant and plant
spread showed significantly positive correlation with seed yield at genotypic and phenotypic
levels. Path coefficient analysis revealed that number of pods, secondary branches and primary
branches per plant were the most important character which can be strategically used to improve
yield in Pigeon pea
