Abstract:

The study was conducted on correlation and path analysis among the different characters influencing the flower yield of twelve different genotypes of China aster. The experiment was carried out in Randomized Block Design during kharif season of 2016-17 under semi-arid climatic condition at Experimental block of Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, UAS, Raichur. Correlation among the different characters influencing the number of leaves, number of secondary branches plant-1and plant spread showed significant positive correlation with yield both at phenotypic and genotypic level suggesting good scope for improvement of yield. The results for path analysis indicated that test weight (10 flower weight), number of secondary branches plant1 and number of flowers plant-1 directly influenced the flower yield and had maximum direct effect. This result suggests that these traits can be directly used to improve the yield of China aster.
