Abstract:

The experiment  was carried out at ZAHRS, UAHS, Shivamogga during 2016-2017 Kharif  to study the character association and path analysis in respect of cured leaf yield and its contributing traits in F3 generation of FCV (Flue Cured Virginia) tobacco cross TB-70 x TB-102, The component characters viz., green leaf yield, top grade equivalent, stem girth, number of leaves per plant, leaf length, leaf area per plant, plant height and leaf breadth exhibited significant positive correlation with each other and also with cured leaf yield. Path analysis in F3 generation indicated maximum positive direct effect of number of leaves per plant, top grade equivalent, leaf breadth, leaf length and green leaf yield on cured leaf yield. In the present investigation superior promising individual families were identified in F3 generation. Therefore, for improving cured leaf yield selection may be based on characters which have shown positive direct association with cured leaf yield.
