Abstract: The present investigation was undertaken to estimate the correlation and path analysis for fruit yield and yield contributing characters in okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench). Fourty genotypes were sown in a randomized block design with two replications during rainy season. The characters studied were, days to 50 percent flowering, plant height, internodal length, number of nodes per plant, number of branches per plant, fruit length, fruit diameter, number of fruits per plant, fruit weight, days to first picking, YVMV incidence and fruit yield per plant. Correlation studies indicated the characters viz., fruit length, fruit weight, number of fruits per plant, number of nodes per plant and days to first picking showed significant and positive correlation with fruit yield per plant. Hence, these traits could be considered as important for improving fruit yield in okra. The path analysis revealed that, all the characters except plant height, fruit diameter, YVMV incidence showed highest direct positive effect on fruit yield per plant. Hence, importance must given to these characters because they are directly proportional to fruit yield per plant.
