FACTORS RESPONSIBLE FOR HARD SEEDEDNESS IN VICIA FABA L.

Published on

Phenological. physiological and chemical factors were observed in 25 genotypes of faba
bean during rabi1983-84 and 1984-85. Hard seededness was correlated positively with hull
percentage (r • 0.766; 0.886), tannin (r • 0.543; 0.422), and phenol content (r • 0.415, 0.475),
but negatively with days from flowering to maturity (r • ..().608; ..().688) and hydration
coefficient (r • ..().832; 0.945). Their importance is supported by coheritability, correlated
response to selection and path coefficient analysis.
