Abstract:

A field trial was conducted for evaluation of 38 hybrids of cabbage at the Experimental Farm, Department of Vegetable Science and Floriculture, CSK HPKV, Palampur, (H.P.) during Rabi 2015-16 to generate information on correlation and path analysis. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. Estimates of correlation coefficient revealed that plant spread, gross head weight, net head weight, polar diameter, equatorial diameter, marketable heads per plot, ascorbic acid content and TSS showed significant positive association with marketable head yield per plot at both genotypic and phenotypic levels indicating that selection based on these characters either in combination or alone will result in identifying the genotypes having high yield potential. Estimates of direct effects showed that net weight of head had the highest positive direct effect on marketable head yield per plot followed by polar diameter, compactness of head, ascorbic acid content, number of non-wrapper leaves and TSS at genotypic level. Therefore, net weight of head, polar diameter and compactness of head should be considered as selection criteria for yield improvement in cabbage breeding.
