Abstract:
This study was designed to explore correlations between flower and seed characters and the relationship of flower and seed characters to yield. Thirty six lines selected from Composite Cross XXXII material were planted in a randomized block design with four replications. At anthesis, spikes from each plot were collected and fixed in 70% alcohol. At the same time, an equivalent spike was tagged to be harvested at maturity. Measurements of flower characters were made on the preserved spikes and seed. Length, width and weight were obtained on the mature spikes. Flower volume was calculated by multiplying the area of lemma and palea by flower thickness. Correlations indicated that selection for flower characters at anthesis would be an effective selection technique for seed characters.
