Advanced wheat breeding lines were tested in RBD design at Jabalpur, india in 2018/19 rabi season,. The major purpose was to study the association among yield and yield contributing characters and recognizing the traits which have the most direct and indirect impact on grain yield. Analysis of variance revealed that there was a significant difference among the advanced wheat breeding lines for all the characters deliberated. Grain yield had positive correlation with number of productive tillers per plant, spike length, number of spikelets per spike, number of kernels per spike and biomass yield per plot at both phenotypic and genotypic levels. Among these characters biological yield and number of kernels per spike had positive correlation with grain yield in the process of selection much attention should be given to them as these characters are helpful for indirect selection.
