Abstract:

In the present investigation the boll weight followed by number of bolls per plant, boll weight and number of sympodia per plant were positively associated with seed cotton yield per plant in the F2 populations. Plant height, number of monopodia per plant, number of sympodia per plant, ginning outturn, seed index, fibre strength and maturity ratio exhibited positive direct effect on seed cotton yield per while, lint index, upper half mean length, uniformity ratio and micronair exhibited negative direct effect. Number of bolls per plant had positive indirect effect on seed cotton yield per plant via number of sympodia per plant, seed index, lint index, fibre strength etc. Boll weight was responsible for high yield through seed index, ginning outturn, lint index. The information obtained helps in giving proper weightage to the various characters during selection or other breeding programme so that the improvement of desirable traits can be achieved effectively.
