Abstract:
The Present investigation entitled “Correlation analysis for different characteristics in Wheat” was undertaken during Rabi 2015. The experiment was carried out to derive Correlation coefficient in two different crosses in Wheat. The experiment was carried out with two different crosses for yield and yield contributing characters. The material consists of two crosses viz., NIAW-1885 X AKAW- 4627, NIDW-15 X NIDW -577. Among the phenotypic correlation of grain yield per plant with seven other characters studied in F2 of two crosses, significant and positive correlations were observed with plant height, number of grains per spike, productive tillers per plant and 1000 grain weight. These characters also showed significant and positive correlation among themselves uniformly in the F2 generation of two crosses. The high magnitude of direct effect of number of grains per spike, productive tillers per plants, plant height, 1000 grain weight along with highly significant correlation in the desirable direction towards grain yield per plant indicated the true and perfect relationship between grain yield and these characters suggesting direct selection based on these character would help in selecting the high yielding genotypes in wheat.
