Title : Correlation and Path Coefficient Analysis for Yield and Its Contributing Traits and other biochemical traits in Desi Cotton (Gossypium arboretum L.) Grown in Different Environment

Abstract :

The present study comprised of thirty Gossypium arboreum genotypes grown in two locations during the kharif seasons in the year 2016 and 2017 in a randomized block design (RBD) at CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar and cotton research station, Sirsa, CCS Haryana Agricultural University. The observations on five randomly selected plants from each replication in each environment were recorded for morphological traits. Pooled mean data of four environments was subjected to examine variability parameters, such as coefficient of variation, association among seed cotton yield and component traits. Seed cotton yield per plant showed highly significant positive correlation with lint yield per plant, number of bolls per plant, boll weight, seed index, number of seeds per boll, number of monopods per plant, plant height, days to boll bursting and days to first flower. The path-coefficient analysis suggested the importance of lint yield per plant, number of bolls per plant, seed index, boll weight and plant height as they exhibited positive direct effects on seed cotton yield.
