Genetic Variability and Path Coefficient Analysis of Components of Ragi (Eleusine Coracana)

  • L. B. Chaudhari (a1) and R. C. Acharya (a1)

Summary

The range, mean, genotypic and phenotypic coefficients of variation, heritability and genetic advance for various characters, of forty-seven varieties of ragi (Eleusine coracana) showed a wide range of variation and highly significant varietal differences. The genetic advance was highest for yield of straw and genotypic coefficients were higher than phenotypic coefficients for most characters. Path coefficient analysis indicated that the number of productive tillers and grain weight of main ears were the major components for seed yield.
