Correlation and Path Coefficient Analysis of Economically Important Traits in Linseed (Linum Usitatissimum L.) germplasm
AbstractThe present investigation 105 linseed germplasm including 5 checks were evaluated in Augmented block design with 5 block during Rabi 2011-2012 at experimental farm of Oil seed Research Station, Latur. (Maharashtra) data were recorded on 10 quantitative characters. Correlation study showed that seed yield exhibited highly positive significant correlation with number of primary branches per plant, number of secondary branches per plant, number of capsule per plant, number of seed per capsule. Significantly inter correlation among traits is useful for breeding programme to improve of yield and its components. Path analysis revealed that the character 1000 seed weight, number of seed per capsule, number of primary branches per plant, plant height had highly positive direct effect with seed yield. The inter-relationship among the characters identified above used in the breeding programme to exploit the yield potential and to develop high yielding improved varieties with ease and target oriented research.
