Abstract:
A study was conducted with a view to predict the correlated response in yield taking plant height as the criterion for single trait phenotypic selection in jute. Results indicated that selection on plant height did not reflect a corresponding response in yield. Application of high selection intensity may be risky. So a low intensity selection on plant height should be applied when selection is done based on plant height only. In such situation, yield estimation of the plants above mean height may increase selection efficiency. But for higher yield direct selection appeared to be efficient over indirect selection.
