Coefficient of Variation, Inter-relationship and Heritability Estimates for Some Seedling Traits in Maize in C1 Recurrent Selection Cycle

S. S. Mehdi and M. Ahsan

Abstract:
The experiment was carried out to evaluate two hundred S1 maize families for fresh shook weight and other seedling traits to select superior families for further inter-crossing in C1 recurrent selection procedure. The values of coefficient of variation (%) for fresh shoot weight, fresh root weight, dry shoot weight and dry root weight were found to be higher (38.8, 25.6, 56.8 and 84.1% respectively). Broad-sense heritability estimates for fresh shoot weight, dry root weight, fresh shoot length and fresh root length were found to be moderate (53.91, 50.26, 62.50 and 48.74%, respectively). Positive and significant linear correlation coefficients were found among all indicated seedling traits.
