Abstract

The character association and path analysis in eleven distinct gillyflower genotypes were studied during the academic year 2022–2023 at the Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, College of Horticulture, Mudigere. The character association studies revealed that plant height (0.885), leaf length (0.700), leaf area (0.670) and number of florets per stalk (0.691) with stalk length showed a significant positive correlation, whereas plant height (-0.782), number of leaves (-0.657), leaf length (-0.778), leaf area (-0.874), intermodal length (-0.767) and stalk length (-0.686) showed significant negative correlation with days taken for stalk emergence. Path analysis revealed that the number of cut flowers per m2 exhibited a highly positive direct effect with the plant height (0.479), leaf area (1.001), number of florets per stalk (0.417) and stalk girth (0.448). This suggests that these are the potential traits in improving the earliness, stalk quality and marketable flower yield. Therefore, greater emphasis is given to these traits while selecting the genotypes for crop improvement.
