Author(s): Diksha Manaware and AK Naidu
Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Path analysis and quality characters in cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis L.)” was conducted at Horticulture Complex, Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture JNKVV, Jabalpur (M.P.) during the year 2016-17. In the present study total plant weight, core length, curd circumference, net curd weight, days to curd initiation, number of leaves per plant at 45 DAT, days to harvest, stalk length at 45 DAT had high positive direct effect on curd yield per plant of these traits may rewarded in other words these traits showed given importance, while practicing selection aimed at improvement of yield in cauliflower. However days to 50% curd formation, curd width and curd length had the highest negative direct effect on curd yield per plant. Path coefficient analysis of different characters contributing towards curd yield per plant showed that total plant weight (0.7553) had highest positive direct effect followed by core length (0.1223), curd circumference (0.1135), net curd weight (0.0233), days to curd initiation (0.0227), number of leaves per plant at 45 DAT (0.0227), days to harvest (0.0200), stalk length at 45 DAT (0.0056).
