Two hundred genotypes of Coriandrum sativum exhibited genetic variability for plant
height, primary and effective branches, days to flowering and maturity, umbels and
umbellets per plant, grains perumbellet, thousand seed weight, straw yield and grain yield
per plant and harvest index. Heritability estimates were high for days to flowering,
1000-grain weight and days to maturity; moderate for plant height, straw yield, umbels and
umbellets and number of primary branches; and low for harvest index, effective branches,
grain yield, and grains per umbellet. Genotypic correlations of grain yield per plant were
moderate with umbellets per plant, umbels per plant, number of effective branches, straw
yield per plant, number of primary branches and plant height. Maximum direct
con tribu tion to grain yield per plant was made by umbellets per plant, followed by straw
yield per plant, umbels per plant and grains per umbellet. Umbellets per plant made
sizeable indirect effect via straw yield per plant. Straw yield per plant made sizeable
indirect contribution via umbellets per plant.
