Correlation and regression of flower production and its seven component traits in kewda
(pandanus fascicularis Lam.) were studied. Flower production per plant was found to be
significantly positively correlated with leaf width (0.93) and negatively with flower weight
(-0.81). Regression study revealed that an increase of one cm in leaf width increased flower
production by 15.09 per plant, while an increase of 1 g in flower weight and 1 mm in leaf
thickness decreased the flower production by 0.18 and 34.78 per plant, respectively.
However, regression analysis indicated that only leaf width. had recorded the maximum
significant value (15.09) out of seven independent variations studied.
