STUDY OF CORRELATION AND PATH ANALYSIS OF THE FLOWER AND FLOWERING CHARACTERS OF DIFFERENT LOCAL ORCHIDS. Al-Faruque MA, Sultana KS, Dewan MR, Rahman MA and Ghose AK

ABSTRACT

An experiment was conducted at Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute, (BARI) Joydebpur, Gazipur to evaluate 23 local species of orchids. The experiment was laid out in the randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Correlation coefficient indicated that length of inflorescence had highly significant and positive association with length of leaf and flowering area. Path coefficient analysis showed that length of leaf directly contributed towards the length of inflorescence. So the inflorescence length, flowering area, number of florets per inflorescence and flowering duration were the important characters for varietal selection of orchids.

STUDY OF CORRELATION AND PATH ANALYSIS OF THE FLOWER AND FLOWERING CHARACTERS OF DIFFERENT HYBRID ORCHIDS. Sultana KS, Al-Faruque MA, Dewan MR, Rahman MA and Ghose AK

ABSTRACT

An experiment was conducted at Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute, (BARI) Joydebpur, Gazipur to evaluate 21 epiphytic hybrid orchids. The experiment was laid out in the randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Correlation coefficient indicated that inflorescence length had positive and highly significant relationship with flowering area, number of florets per inflorescence and flowering duration. Path coefficient analysis showed flowering area directly contributed towards the inflorescence length and flowering duration had considerable positive direct effect on inflorescence length. So the inflorescence length, flowering area, number of florets per inflorescence and flowering duration were the important characters for varietal selection of orchids.
