Abstract:

30 genotypes were evaluated to understand the nature and magnitude of association for seed yield and fibre traits in linseed (Linum usitatissimum L). Genotypic and phenotypic correlation coefficients obtained between different traits was similar in direction, while in magnitude, genotypic correlation higher than the corresponding phenotypic correlations. Seed yield per plant showed positive and significant correlation with harvest index, 1000-seed weight, straw yield, aerial biomass, seeds per capsule, capsules per plant, days to 50 per cent flowering and days to 75 per cent maturity while, plant height showed significant negative correlation. On the basis of path coefficient analysis, harvest index followed by aerial biomass exhibited the highest direct effects on seed yield per plant.


Keywords: Genotypic correlation coefficient, Phenotypic correlation, Harvest index, Aerial biomass
