Selection index in huskless barley hordeum vulgare

Crop Improvement 9(1): 75-77

Selection index in huskless barley hordeum vulgare

Studies on path coefficient analysis and selection indexes on 40 genotypes of huskless barley revealed that the number of effective tillers was the most important character for selection in combination with yield per se.
