Studies on correlation indicated that intensive selection on the positive side for plant height, sympodia per plant, seed index, lintindex, 2.5 per cent span length and bolls per plant since these characters showed positive correlation with seed cotton yield andalso positive correlation among themselves. Days to flower initiation, micronaire value and elongation per cent showed negativecorrelation with seed cotton yield and hence a compromise towards selection is required in this case. Path
