Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at Saffron Research Station Pampore, (SKUAST-K) during Rabi 2017-18. Observations were recorded on 10 randomly selected and tagged competitive plants for eighteen (18) morphological, floral and corm traits viz, number of flowers line-1, number of days to 50% flowering, total flower weight corm-1, inner tepal length, outer tepal length, inner tepal width, outer tepal width, anther length, anther width, style length, stigma length, fresh pistil weight line-1, leaf length, dry pistil weight line-1, number of leaves corm-1line-1, number of days to 50% sprouting, big Corm Index and multiplication index. The path analysis revealed that stigma length and flower weight recorded highest direct effect towards dry pistil weight followed by number of flowers per corm per line, fresh pistil weight and big corm index. Rest of the traits as recorded the negative direct effect of multiplication index, number of days to 50% flowering, number of days to 50% sprouting on the dependant variable.
