Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during kharif 2013 and 2014 in North Coastal Zone of Andhra Pradesh at Agricultural Research Station, Ragolu, Srikakulam district to study the character association among quantitative traits and their direct and indirect effects on seed yield in a set of 60 genotypes of roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.). The quantitative traits pods plant-1, base diameter, seeds pod-1, plant height, mid diameter, nodes plant-1 and test weight were found to be highly significant and positively correlated with the dependent variable, seed yield. Partitioning of phenotypic correlation coefficients of various components upon seed yield plant-1 into direct and indirect contributions revealed that pods plant-1 has maximum direct effect followed by seeds pod-1 and test weight. Selection for characters viz., pods plant-1, seeds pod-1, test weight, plant height and base diameter along with seed yield will be useful for improving seed yield in roselle.
