Forty genotypes of tomato were used to study the correlation and path coefficient analysis of thirteen yield and yield related traits during Kharif, 2017-18. Fruit yield per plant exhibited high significant positive correlations with average fruit weight, yield per hectare, beta carotene and lycopene. It also registered significant negative correlation with plant height, number of primary branches per plant, days to fruit set, number of fruits per plant, ascorbic acid and TSS. Path analysis revealed that the traits like number of fruits per plant and average fruit weight exhibited positive direct effects on fruit yield and these traits also recorded positive correlation with yield. This suggested that direct selection based on these traits will be rewarding for crop yield improvement.
