Correlation coefficients were determined in fifteen wheat genotypes for plant height, days to heading, days to maturity, 1000-kernel weight, spike length, number of tillers per plant, number of spikelets per spike and grain yield per plant. The result revealed that grain yield per plant was positively and highly significantly correlated with days to maturity but negatively and highly significantly associated with plant height. Days to maturity had highest positive direct effect on yield.
Key words: Triticum aestivum, yield contributing characters, path analysis, correlation
