Abstract:
The study was conducted with Randomized Block Design with three replications and fourty genotypes of durum wheat at Junagadh Agricultural University, during the rabi 2020-21 growing season. The analysis is done using the indo-stat software. Correlation studies of the characters, grain yield per plant was found to be significantly and positively correlated with plant height followed by number of productive tillers per plant, biological yield per plant and harvest index at both the genotypic and phenotypic levels. The path analysis revealed that biological yield per plant and harvest index exhibited high and positive direct effect on grain yield per plant and was found to be the most important yield components. The characters, days to maturity had moderate and positive direct effect on grain yield per plant. While days to 50% flowering and grain filling period had low and negative direct effect on grain yield per plant. Thus, these characters were the most important traits and may contribute considerably towards higher grain yield.
