Abstract: Present research was carried out at Experimental farm of Department of Agril. Botany, VNMKV, Parbhani during Kharif 2017. The experimental material comprised of thirty one genotypes of dolichos bean and the experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with two replications. The observations was recorded on twelve characters viz. Days to first flowering, days to 50% flowering, length of inflorescence (cm), number of flowers per inflorescence, number of pods per inflorescence, days to first pod harvest, pod length(cm), pod width(cm), no of grains per pod, mean pod weight (gm), pod yield per plant (kg), pod yield per ha(q). It was observed that marketable pod yield per plant had exhibited highly significant positive association with number of pod per inflorescence, pod length and mean pod weight. Direct selection based on these traits could result in simultaneous improvement of aforesaid traits and marketable pod yield in Dolichos bean.
