CORRELATION STUDIES OF DIFFERENT PARAMETERS IN PUMMELO (CITRUS GRANDIS L.) WITH FRUIT YIELDK.A. Gaikwad, P.C. Haldavanekar and R.A. Durgude
The under consideration research studies, comprising 30 genotypes of pummelo, were conducted in Konkan region of Maharashtra. The primary objective was to find out relationship between yield, yield components and ultimately the development of new genotypes with more yield. Correlation study revealed that the correlation of fruit yield with number of fruits tree-1, fruit weight, fruit length, diameter, size of oil gland, diameter of axis, rind thickness, weight of pulp, rag weight and ascorbic acid was highly significant and in positive direction. The highest correlation coefficient value r (0.643) existed between number of fruits/ tree and yield.
