The experiment was conducted on cluster bean to identify the correlation among characters and direct and indirect effects of characters on seed yield per plant. Fifty accessions were evaluated during Kharif 2014 and observations were recorded on seed yield-related characters. In this study seed yield per plant is significantly and positively correlated with the traits like number of pods per plant, number of branches per plant, number of seeds per pod, pod length and plant height. Protein content has a negative and significant correlation with the seed yield per plant. The number of pods per plant has a maximum direct effect on seed yield per plant followed by the number of seeds per pods and 100 seed weight.
Key words: Cluster bean, correlation and path coefficient
