Morphological Response of Various Genotypes to Drought Conditions

M. Usman Khan, Muhammad Aslam Chowdhry , Ihsan Khaliq and Rashid Ahmad

Abstract:
The experiment was conducted in greenhouse and field under moisture stress condition using twenty four spring wheat genotypes. Inter-relationship among different characters were estimated by simple correlation and path-coefficient analysis. Simple correlation indicated that survival rate, root/shoot ratio, root density, number of veins, flag leaf area, plant height, number of tillers per plant and 1000-grain weight showed positive and significant association with grain yield. Whereas, path-coefficient analysis revealed that 1000-grain weight, root density and stomatal frequency, are the characters which exerted maximum direct positive effect on yield, respectively.
