Abstract:

A study was conducted to assess the induced genetic variability, interrelationship among yield components and their direct and indirect effect on yield. Thirty six genotypes of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) were evaluated in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. Substantial amount of genetic variations were observed with low influence of environment indicated consistence performance of the genotypes. GCV and PCV were highest for number of capsules per plant followed by number of primary branches per plant. Greater magnitude of heritability coupled with high to moderate genetic advance as per cent of mean was observed for number of capsules per plant, number of primary branches per plant, plant height, seed yield per plant and 1000 seed weight. Seed yield per plant had positive and significant correlation with plant height, number of capsules per plant 1000 seed weight and protein content, while highly correlate with number of capsules per plant. Path coefficient analysis revealed that number of capsules per plant has strong positive direct effect on seed yield per plant. Number of capsules per plant, number of primary branches per plant, 1000 seed weight and plant height were identified as important traits for selection in linseed breeding program.
