Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out at the Research Farm, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari (Gujarat) during the kharif-2018. Twelve different quantitative characters related to rhizome yield were recorded and subjected for estimation of analysis of variance revealed significant differences between genotypes indicating presence of sufficient amount of variability in all the studied characters. The studied materials revealed wide range of variation by virtue of exhibiting highly significant genotypic differences for all the twelve traits. The magnitudes of genotypic correlations were higher as compared to the corresponding phenotypic correlations indicating that there was an inherent association between all the characters at genotypic level. Path coefficient analysis showed rhizome width, leaf width, mother rhizomes per plant, leaf length and leaves per plant exhibited positive direct effects on green rhizome yield per plant. Hence, priority should be given to these traits in mango ginger improvement programme.
