Abstract
Seed yield, primary branches and capsules per plant showed a wide range of phenotypic variability. The genotypic component of variances was greater than the environmental component for all characters studied. The predicted genetic advance was high for plant height, primary branches, capsules per plant, capsule per axil and seed yield. Capsules per plant, capsules per axil and seed yield are probably the most effective characters for selection. Path coefficient analysis indicated that capsules per plant had the highest direct contribution to yield followed by 1000 seed weight.
