Variability and correlation studies in durum wheat in Alem-Tena, Ethiopia



Variability and correlation studies in durum wheat in Alem-Tena, Ethiopia



Rachis 12(1/2): 38-41



Variability and correlation studies were carried out on seed yield and nine component characters of 70 durum wheat (Triticum turgidum subsp durum genotypes in Alem-Tena, Ethiopia. Seed yield showed the highest variation, highlighting the potential for improvement via direct selection. The lowest variation was shown by number of days to heading. Large variations were also observed for number of tillers and number of grains/spike.
