Character association and path analysis in eighteen genotypically diverse indigenous genotypes of brinjal were studied at Horticultural Research cum Instructional Farm, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.) during the rabi season of 2015-2016 for fourteen characters. The genotypic association of fruit yield was significantly positive with plant spread and these traits were identified as yield components. The genetic improvement of fruit yield thus can be obtained by direct selection of these yield components. The path analysis study revealed that the fruits length is the most important yield determinant, because of its high direct effect and indirectly influence the yield through number of clusters per plant, plant height and plant spread is the another most important yield determinant. Thus, these characters should be given importance in selection programme for yield improvement in brinjal.

Key words:Brinjal, correlation, Path analysis, Character association
