Correlation and path analysis for seed yield and components traits in maize (Zea mays L.)

Author(s):

Vishal Verma, MS Yadav, Anil Kumar and GS Gathiye

Abstract:
A field experiment with 30 maize inbred lines was conducted to study the correlation and path coefficient analysis for seed yield and its component traits in maize at Horticulture Research Farm, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Bundelkhand University, Jhansi (U.P.) during Kharif-2018. Correlation coefficient of seed yield per plant was highly significant and positive with seed yield per cob, number of seed per cob, shelling % and biological yield per plant which indicated that effective improvement in maize yield through these components could be achieved. Path coefficient analysis showed that biological yield per plant, harvest index, seed yield per cob, seed per cob, seeds per row, 100 seed weight, days to 50% germination, cob ear weight, cob length and days to 50% tasseling, days to 50% silking, days to 50% maturity, cobs per plant were the most important characters contributing towards seed yield per plant and selection based on these characters would be more effective for improvement in maize crop.
