Abstract

Twenty two CMS-based pigeonpea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.] hybrids were evaluated to study the nature and magnitude of relationship of important agronomic traits with seed yield along with their direct and indirect effects in determining yield. The results showed that days to flower, number of secondary branches, pods/plant, seeds/pod, and seed size in hybrids had direct positive effects in determining yield. Among hybrids only the number of pods/plant was positively associated with seed yield.
