Correlation coefficients and path coeffiCients were calculated for leaf yield and its
twelve components from 23 genotypes comprising 8 parental and 15 selected F1
hybrids in mulberry (Morus spp.). Leaf yield is found to have higher positive
correlation with laminar !ndex (w.t.), weight of 100 dry leaves, number of branches
per plant, internodal distance, annual aerial biomass, stem weight, number of leaves
per branch and secondary branches per plant. Path analysis revealed that internodal
distance, annual aerial biomass, stem weight, number of leaves per branch, number
of primary branches had strong direct effect on leaf yield.
Keywords: Morus alba, mulberry, correlatic.n, path coefficient, leaf yield.
