Abstract:

Ten genotypes of chrysanthemum (Dendranthema grandiflora Tzvelve) were assessed for 12 quantitative and qualitative traits to study the path analysis of different parameters with yield components and their direct and indirect effects on flower yield. Genotypic path coefficient analysis revealed that flower yield per plant was directly and positively influenced by number of flowers per plant, individual flower weight, days to flower bud initiation and shelf life of flowers. Whereas, negative direct influence by days taken for fifty per cent flowering, number of primary branches and duration of flowering were noticed. Further, the path coefficient analysis (phenotypic) revealed that flower yield per plant had positive direct effect from number of flowers per plant, individual flower weight, days taken for flower bud initiation, flower diameter and shelf life of flowers; whereas, negative direct effect through days taken for fifty per cent flowering was noticed. Hence, selection for these traits would be effective for flower yield improvement in chrysanthemum.
