Abstract:

In this study interrelationship among various morphological and yield related traits was estimated in a set of 34 linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) genotypes. Genotypic and phenotypic correlation coefficients obtained between different traits was similar in direction, while in magnitude, genotypic correlation higher than the corresponding phenotypic correlations. Correlation studies indicated that seed yield of linseed had significant positive correlation with aerial biomass, harvest index, straw yield, retted straw yield, 1000 seed weight, primary branches per plant, capsules per plant, secondary branches per plant, technical height, fibre yield, plant height, oil content and seeds per capsule. Thus, these thirteen traits can be used as a selection index for improving seed yield. Path coefficient analysis revealed that higher and positive direct effect on seed yield was exhibited by aerial biomass. So, aerial biomass was observed to be best selection parameter because of its direct contribution towards seed yield per plant.
