Author(s):

Abstract:
Nine lines, 3 testers and 27 F1 crosses of basmati rice (Oryza sativa L.) mated through Line × Tester mating Design to decipher the extent and nature of correlation between yield and yield contributing characters moreover quality traits were also included in the study. At the end of the experiment and subsequent statistical analysis it was deciphered that grain yield per plant has positive significant correlation with number of effective tillers per plant and hulling recovery which pointed that the number of effective tillers is an important trait that can be targeted as a selection criteria in yield improvement programmes in breeding of Basmati rice moreover quality traits like hulling recovery and milling recovery should also be emphasized specially in long-grained rice.
