Variability For Grain Yield, its Components and Quality Traits in a Sweet Corn Population

Muhammad Jawad Asghar and Syed Sadaqat Mehdi

Abstract:
One hundred S1 families were developed from an open pollinated population of sweet corn. The estimates of genetic variance and broad-sense heritability were significant for all the yield and quality traits. The maximum estimate of broad-sense heritability was for number of grain rows per cob (h2= 0.84). Significant and positive estimates of genetic correlations were noted for cob length in combination with number of grains per row (r = 0.75). Similarly, among quality traits, sweetness and sweet flavour showed positive and significant genetic correlation (r = 0.82).
