Abstract

The present study on “Estimation of direct and indirect effect of yield attributing characters on grain yield in kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.)” was carried out at Instructional cum Research Farm of S.G. College of Agriculture and Research Station Kumhrawand, Jagdalpur, Chhattisgarh. In this study direct effect of productive tillers per plant on grain yield per plot was positive and high at genotypic and phenotypic level. Indicated true relationship of this trait and direct selection through this character will be effective.

Keywords: Kodo millet, Paspalum scrobiculatum, path coefficient, direct effect, indirect effect
