Genetic variability, correlation and path analysis studies in B parental lines of kharif sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)

Author(s):
Tirkey Sheetal, Jawale LN and More AW
Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted to evaluate 15 B kharif parental lines for variability, correlation and path analysis studies for eleven yield and yield attributing traits viz. plant height, days to 50 % flowering, pollen fertility, days to maturity, number of primaries per cob, number of grains per primary, panicle length, panicle width, 1000 grain weight, grain yield and fodder yield per plant. Grain yield and fodder yield per plant expressed high estimates of GCV and PCV. Number of primaries per cob, number of grains per primary, panicle length, panicle width and 1000 grain weight had positive correlation with grain yield per plant through direct and indirect effects. Also, these characters exhibited high heritability coupled with high genetic advance. AKMS 33 B, AKMS 90 B, 49 B, 98 B, PMS 100 B showed better performance for all characters thus, should be utilized for development of hybrid combinations in breeding programmes.
