Genetic variability in celosia genotypes
Author(s): Mangaiyarkarasi R, P Aruna, M Ganga and D Malarvizhi
Abstract: Genetic variability, characterization of genotypes for yield and quality traits were studied in Celosia (Celosia spp.). This study indicated considerable amount of genetic variability for all the characters studied. Higher GCV and PCV were recorded for characters like flower yield per plant, seed yield and number of flowers per plant indicating higher magnitude of variability for these characters and characterization of genotypes has been estimated for growth habit, stem colour, branching, leaf shape, leaf colour, leaf arrangement, leaf pubescent, leaf venation colour, flowering habit and flower bearing position. These characters can be effectively improved through selection.
