Abstract:

Seed cotton yield and fibre quality traits are governed by polygenes and these traits are highly influenced by the environment. Hence, selection merely based on yield is not effective. In order to enhance the yield potential of the cotton varieties, knowledge on the direct contribution of different characters to yield would be highly important for formulating a selection programme. The path analysis study indicated that the selection based on plant height, number of sympodia per plant, days to 50% boll bursting, number of bolls per plant, lint yield per plant will improve the seed cotton yield per plant as high direct effect were reported by these traits. The fibre quality traits micronaire, fibre strength and elongation % were also had high direct effect on seed cotton yield per plant. Therefore these characters may be considered as the most important yield contributing characters and due emphasis should be placed on these characters while breeding for high seed cotton yield in cotton.
