Path Coefficient Analysis of Some Yield Traits in Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)

S. Haidar and M. A. Khan    

Abstract: Path coefficient analysis was done to understand the type of contribution directly as well as indirectly of each character to yield of seed cotton. The results revealed that number of bolls per plant and boll weight had the maximum direct effect on yield of seed cotton per plant. Number of bolls per plant had negative indirect effect on boll weight, while boll weight had positive indirect effect on ginning outturn percentage and negative indirect effect on number of bolls per plant and number of seeds per boll. Number of seeds per boll had negative direct effect on yield of seed cotton per plant while ginning outturn percentage had very small positive effect on yield of seed cotton per plant. So it is suggested that selection for higher productivity should be based on higher number of bolls per plant and boll weight.
