The field experiment was carried out during Rabi season of the year 2011-2012 on the experimental field of Department of Horticulture, Dr. PDKV, Akola, Maharashtra (India). The study was undertaken on twenty four genotypes of coriander using Randomized Block Design with three replications. This study revealed that number of umbels per plant (0.25) and test weight (0.31) was associated significantly and positively with seed yield per plant. The perusal of path coefficient analysis shown days to 50% flowering (2.08) had highest direct effect on seed yield followed by number of seed per umbel (1.01), number of secondary branches (0.52), number of umbel per plant (0.49), test weight (0.28), plant height (0.23), leaf area (0.11) and chlorophyll content (0.11). Therefore, greater emphasis should be given on these characters while selecting for higher yield and related traits.
