Abstract

Twenty-five mungbean genotypes were involved in field trials during kharif seasons of 2000 and 2001 to evaluate the relative efficacy of different phenological days and yield attributing traits for yield determination in mungbean genotypes. Through estimates of correlations, partitioning of correlations into direct and indirect effects through path analysis and regression it was concluded that mungbean seed yield is positively affected by total dry matter yield, per day dry matter production as well as per day dry matter partitioning and negatively by dry matter allocation to pod wall. Amongst traits, maximum and minimum per cent associations were recorded for dry matter partitioning per day of seed filling and 100 seed weight, respectively. The multiple correlation of the traits for mungbean seed yield was estimated as 0.988
