A Correlation and Path Coefficient Analysis for Some Yield Components in Bread Wheat

Abdus Salam Khan , Muhammad Ashfaq and Muhammad Azeem Asad

Abstract:
Correlation between some production traits were computed for 15 wheat varieties/lines. Path coefficient analysis were used to determine the direct and indirect effect of different characters on grain yield. A positive and significant correlation was observed between number of tillers per plant and peduncle length both at genotypic and phenotypic levels. There were highly significant correlation between spike length and grain yield per plant at phenotypic levels and positive significant at genotypic level. Path analysis showed that number of tillers per plant and spike length are the characters which contribute largely to grain yield.
