Inheritance of yield components and their correlation with yield in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.)

Abstract

The inheritance of yield components was studied in a cross of two varieties of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata), and the relationships among the components and yield were examined in the F2 of a cross and in a trial of 22 varieties. The main objective was to determine the suitability of using the components as selection criteria for increasing seed yield. All the… (More)
