Abstract:

The research carried out during 2010 at Saffron Research Station Pampore, SKUAST-Kashmir to investigate the yield relationships between yield and some yield related components of fifty clones of saffron (Croccus sativus L.) by using path coefficient analysis. All the clones were replicated thrice with plant geometry of 20×10cm. Observations were recorded on 10 randomly selected and tagged competitive plants for morphological, physiological, floral and corm attributes. The path analysis revealed that pistil length recorded highest direct effect towards fresh pistil weight followed by plant height and stigma length. Rest of the traits as number of flowers recorded weak positive direct effects and the negative direct effect of number of radical leaves plant-1 on the dependant variable. However in case of corm attributes in saffron (Crocus sativus L.), average weight of daughter corms per mother corm exerted negative direct effect on number of daughter corms per mother corm while as size of stomata showed strong positive direct effect on number of daughter corms per mother corm. Based on findings of present investigation possibility of saffron improvement is indicated through clonal selection from the available germplasm resources.
