Path and correlation coefficient analysis for fourteen different morphological characters in Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.)


Author(s): Priya Patel, RK Patel, KG Modha, Thokchom Joydeep Singh and Manju Singh

Abstract: The present investigation planned to study thirty diverse genotypes of turmeric for fourteen different morphological traits and evaluated in randomized block design with two replications. Path coefficient analysis indicated that the traits like plant height, tillers per plant, secondary fingers per rhizome, rhizome width, green rhizome weight, dry rhizome weight recovery (%) and powder recovery (%) exhibited high and positive direct effects on green yield per plant. In majority of the cases the genotypic correlation was recorded higher than phenotypic correlations for all the studied characters, indicating little influence of environment and the presence of inherent association between various characters.
