In this experiment crosses was made in 2018-2019 using diallel mating design (excluding reciprocal crosses) and the data investigated in 2019-2020 at Vegetable Research Farm of Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology Kanpur, India. The experimental material comprised 8 diverse genotypes of vegetable pea obtained from Vegetable Science Department of Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology. The 28 crosses along with their 8 parents / diverse genotypes were grown in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Results of Correlation study revealed that pod yield per plant exhibited highly significant and positive correlation with plant height, number of branches per plant, days to 50% flowering, pod length, shelling percentage and pod width. The highest positive and direct effect on pod yield per plant was exerted by intermodal length followed by number of grain per pod and pod length. These are used in breeding programme in future prospects point of view.
