Character association of quality characters with yield in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)

Author(s):

Abstract:

Twenty six genotypes of potato were evaluated for knowing correlation for yield and five quality characters during Kharief 2008 at the Experimental Farm of Division of Vegetable Science, SKUAST-K, Shalimar. Studies on genotypic and phenotypic correlations revealed positive and significant correlation of tuber yield plant-1 with specific gravity (rg=0.478, rp= 0.464) and dry matter content (rg=0.396) thereby suggesting that any increase in these characters would bring enhancement in the most complex characters i.e., tuber yield. Tuber yield plant-1 exhibited non-significant positive correlation with total soluble solids (TSS) and vitamin C and significant negative correlation with protein content (rg= -0.456, rp= -0.411)
