Abstract

The higher GCV and PCV were observed for productive tlUers per plant, grain yield
per plant, plant height and grains per ear. The characters days to 5096 flowering, plant height,
productive tillers per plant and grains per ear expressed high heritability (BS) accompanied
with high genetic advance. There was highly significant positive association of grain yield
with plant height, days to 50% flowering, productive tillers and grain weight per ear. the
number of grains per ear (0.947) and grain weight per ear (0.757) had the highest direct
effect on grain yield. Plant height, productive tillers,length of spike, grains per ear and 1000
grain weight are very Important yield contributing characters and should be given more emphasis
during selection
