VARIABILITY PATTERN IN AGROMORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS IN SAFFLOWER (CARTHAMUS TINCTORIUS L.)

Published on

Ninety eight germplasm accessions and five checks of safflower were studied for their
variability for eight agromorphological characters. Coefficient of variability was high for
yield per plant, number of primaries and secondaries per plant, and number of effective
capitula per plant. Thirteen promising germplasm lines are identified for use in breeding
programme.
