The present experiment was carried out entitled “Correlation and Path analysis in Cowpea [(Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.)]” during kharif season of the year 2014- 2015 at Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University (A Central University), Vidya- Vihar, Rae Bareli Road, Lucknow-226025 (U.P.) India. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The experimental materials consisting sixteen genotypes of cowpea i.e. Kashi Unnati, Kashi Shyamal, Kashi Gauri, Kashi Kanchan, Kashi Nidhi, IC-559393, IC-259063, IC-559405, IC-202786, IC-559386, IC-202776, IC-242598, EC-9736, EC-1738, EC-30590 and EC-15296. The maximum correlation coefficient at genotype level and phenotypic level was observed for average pod yield per plot. The results of path coefficient for parent are highest positive direct effect towards pod yield per plant was showed by plant height.
Key words: Correlation coefficient at genotype level, Phenotypic level and Path coefficient.
