Character association analysis in safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.)

PS Rathod, SB Ghuge and MP Wankhade
The present experiment was conducted at the experimental farm of All India Co-ordinated Research Project on Safflower, V.N.M.K.V., Parbhani during rabi, 2019 with a view to study the genotypic and phenotypic correlation and path analysis studies for yield and yield contributing traits in safflower. Sixty two safflower germplasm accessions along with 2 local checks viz., A-1, PBNS-12 were evaluated. Phenotypic and genotypic correlation of seed yield was positive and significant with plant height, number of primary and secondary branches per plant, number of effective capitula per plant, 100-seed weight, hull content. Thus these characters are the key yield contributing characters to be given selection pressure for improving yield. The result of path analysis indicated that the character number of primary branches, days to 50% flowering, number of secondary branches exerted the highest direct positive effect on seed yield per plant.
