An experiment on correlation and path analysis involving fifteen F2ss and eight parents of brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) was
conducted during Rabi 2012-13. Association of fruit yield per plant with number of fruits per cluster and number of fruits per plant were found
positive and highly significant at genotypic level. Path co-efficient analysis revealed that length of fruit, number of fruits per cluster, plant
height, days to last picking, average weight of fruit and number of fruits per plant would be selection criteria for yield improvement in brinjal.
