Title : Augmentation of yield in African marigold (Tagetus erecta L) through Path co efficient analysis and correlation studies

Abstract :

Path co efficient analysis and Correlation studies were carried out in 35 genotypes of African marigold and correlation co efficient for different characters at genotypic and phenotypic levels are presented. In general, genotypic correlations were larger magnitude than that of corresponding phenotypic correlation indicating the, strong association between the traits studied. The knowledge of correlation helps in determining the relative importance of component characters influencing the yield. The branches per plant, significantly positive correlation was observed between flower yield per plant and stalk length. Days to first flowering were the only character their exhibited a non-significant and positive association with flower yield per plant. Hence an idotypic of African marigold should be tall in stature, bearing more branches, producing maximum number of flowers in order to get high yield and to realize maximum return for the flower growers.
