Abstract:

Twenty candidate plus trees (CPT’s) of Salix alba were selected from different locations of Kashmir valley following comparison tree method. Significant variation and association were observed among all the selected CPT’s for catkin and seed traits. CPT-12 had maximum for majority of the characters. Heritability in broad sense was high for all the characters under study with maximum (0.936) for capsule diameter followed by high to moderate gain indicating the additive gene action. Germination percentage was found to have positive and significant correlation with catkin and seed weight. CPT-12, CPT-6 and CPT-53 were found to be best on the basis of these characters.


Keywords: Catkin-seed, Salix alba, CPT’s, Correlation and heritability.
