Path coefficient analysis in mustard (Brassica juncea L.)
Keywords:Indian mustard, path coefficient analysis, genotypic, phenotypic
An field experiment was conducted with 20 genotypes of Indian Mustard (Brassica juncea L.) at the farm of Agricultural Research Sub Station, Sumerpur with an objective to find out path coefficient analysis and came to a conclusion that research showed positive direct effect with characters like days to 50% flowering, number of silique per plant, number of seeds per silique, 1000 seed weight, biological yield wherein seed yield per plant showed highest values thereafter maximum negative direct effect showed by length of main raceme for genotypic characters. While for phenotypic positive direct effect were expressed for characters like days to 50% flowering, number of primary branches per plant, days to maturity, number of siliquae per plant, number of seeds per silique, 1000 seed weight, biological yield per plant where negative direct effect was exhibited by number of secondary branches per plant, length of main raceme, plant height.
