CORRELATION AND PATH ANALYSIS IN TRITICALE

Published on

Study on genotypic and phenotypic correlations in triticale indicated that spike length,
harvest index, and grains per spike were positively associated with grain yield.
Path-eoefficient analysis revealed that spike length, flag leaf area, days to heading,
spikelets per spike and toOo-grain weightwere the majorcharaders influencing grain yield
directly and indirectly. The results suggested that spike length could be taken as the most
reliable and effective selection criterion for yield improvement.
 

Keywords: Correlation, path analysis, triticale.
