Character association in ratoon crop of rice (Oryza sativa L.)

Ambili S. Nair, C.A. Rosamma


The present investigation was carried out with 24 rice genotypes, which exhibited ratoon performance. Observations recorded on various characters were subjected to correlation and path analysis. The characters viz. number of productive tillers plant'1, straw yield, total number of tillers during flowering, and LAI (flowering) were found to be the major contributing characters towards ratoon yield.
