Twenty four genotypes of coriander were evaluated in Kharif season 2016 for different horticultural traits. The phenotypic and genotypic coefficients of variation were found moderate for plant height and secondary branches per plant. The moderate genetic gain was observed for primary branches per plant, umbel diameter and fruits per umbel. The phenotypic and genotypic correlation coefficients among different characters showed that seed  yield per plant had positive and significant association with test weight, no. of umbel per plant, plant height, no. of fruits per umbel, no. of umbellates per umbel and no. of fruits per umbellate. The path coefficient analysis revealed that maximum positive direct effect towards seed yield per plant was contributed by towards fruits per umbel, umbel per plant, days to 50% flowering, days to first umbel unfolding, test weight and primary branches thereby indicating the importance of these traits for yield improvement in coriander through direct or indirect selection.

Key words: Coriander, Correlation, Path analysis, Indirect selection and Seed yield.
