Inter-relationship and Path Coefficient Analysis for Biometric Traits in Drought Tolerant Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

A.J. Khan, F. Azam , A. Ali , M. Tariq and M. Amin

Abstract:
Ten elite wheat breeding lines were evaluated for yield and yield components under rainfed conditions at Peshawar. Genotypic and phenotypic associations between the characters and their direct and indirect effects on grain yield were analyzed. Plant height showed positive correlation only with spikelets per spike and was negatively correlated with the other studied characters. Positive correlation of tillers per plant was observed with all the traits except spikelets per spike. Spike length was found to be positively correlated with spikelets per spike and grain yield and negatively so with 1000-grain weight. Significantly negative correlation of spikelets per spike was observed with 1000 grain weight and grain yield. Correlation coefficient between 1000-grain weight and grain yield ha-1 was positive and significant. Overall tillers per plant, spike length and 1000-grain weight showed significant positive correlation with grain yield while plant height and spikelets per spike were negative and significantly (p<0.05) correlated with grain yield. Path analysis indicated that tillers per plant had the highest positive direct effect on grain yield followed by spikelets per spike and 1000-grain weight, whereas plant height and spike length had negative direct effect on this parameter.
