The light interception by plants is greater when using low densities, resulting in a higher biomass production and emission of racemes; whereas high plant densities lead to plants with lower number of racemes (Soratto et al., 2011).
Thrips damage rating and thrips counts in flowers: In field trial, visual rating of thrips damage was recorded during raceme and mid-podding stage (37-55 days after planting) using the visual rating scale developed by Jackai and Singh (1988) (Table 1).
The descriptors PRI, SD, MIL, NI, and FLO were analyzed during full flowering of the primary raceme, whereas the descriptors NRH, PH and FD were observed when the racemes were mature to the point of harvest.
Above one half value of predictability ratio revealed predominance of additive gene action for the characters viz., days to 50% flowering of primary raceme, plant height up to primary raceme, number of nodes up to primary raceme, number of effective branches per plant, length of primary raceme, effective length of primary raceme, number of capsules on primary raceme, number of secondary spikes per plant, total number of capsules per plant, test weight of 100 kernels, kernel length, kernel width, seed yield per plant and oil content.
Path analysis depicted that pods per raceme influenced positively and directly seed yield (pc=0.60**) and flowers per raceme had a positively indirect effect via pods per raceme on seed yield (pc=0.40**).
Inflorescences composed of dyads, triads or monads grouped in spikes or racemes, found in the leaf axils or solitary.
