Abstract:
An experiment was conducted with 30 cultivars of lilium (Lilium spp.) to study correlation and path analysis among the yield attributing traits and their effect. Correlation among component characters showed that florets per stalk showed a highly significant positive association with flowering duration (0.771), stalks per square meter (0.738), leaves per plant (0.725), stalk weight (0.715), stalk diameter (0.711), leaf area (0.594), bud length (0.372), plant height (0.345) and stalk length (0.336). Path- coefficient analysis revealed that flowering duration exhibited very high positive direct effect on florets per stalk, followed by days to flower bud initiation, bud length, stalk length, stalks per square meter, stalk weight and leaves per plant proving that direct selection of these traits can be implemented for yield improvement. Hence the parameters selected in the study are sufficient for direct selection of cultivars for cut flower attributing traits in lilium.
