Crop yield is mainly dependent on the interplay of various physiological and biochemical functions of the plants in addition to the
impact of environment. A cause and effect relationship is necessary to understand interplay of several processed and functions affecting crop
yield. The genotypes TNAU-63, OLM-20 and TNAU-89 recorded higher total chlorophyll and nitrate reductase activity. Correlation study
indicated that a significant and a positive association of thses parameters with grain yield. Chlorophyll a, b, total chlorophyll and nitrate
reductase activity had positive correlation with yield.
