Direct and indirect effects of synchrony and other quantitative traits on grain yield in wheat



Direct and indirect effects of synchrony and other quantitative traits on grain yield in wheat



Indian Journal of Genetics & Plant Breeding 43(3): 311-313



Direct and indirect effects of the quantitative traits including 4 synchrony traits on the grain yield of wheat were studied under 2 environments with close plantings. Tillers per plant had the highest direct effect on yield. This trait not only contributed indirectly but some other characters also influenced yield positively via this attribute. Weight per ear and synchrony of height were another important components which contributed directly and indirectly in the positive direction to the grain yield. Height and synchrony of grains per ear had negative direct effect on yield. Component breeding with greater emphasis on tillers per plant, grain weight/ear and synchrony of height were suggested.
