CHARACTER ASSOCIATION AND PATH COEFFICIENT ANALYSIS IN KHARIF ONION (allium cepa L.)

Abstract


Correlation study indicated that bulb yield had significant and positive correlation with plant height volume of bulb, bulb weight, equatorial bulb diameter, neck thickness, dry matter content and nitrogen in leaves and had significant negative correlation with number of doubles bulb. Path analysis showed that phosphorous in leaves followed by bulb and neck thickness had highest positive direct effect on bulb yield. On the basis of present study it may be concluded that the bulb weight, polar bulb diameter, neck thickness and volume of bulb should be given due weight age while making selection for desirable genotypes.
