Path analysis of causal relationship among traits to explain the variation of number of spikelets per panicle (A) and yield (B). NS: number of spikelets per panicle, NPr: number of primary rachis-branch (PRB)es per panicle, NSPr: number of spikelets on PRBs per panicle, MNSPr: mean number of spikelets on a PRB, NSr: number of secondary rachis-branch (SRB)es per panicle, NSSr: number of spikelets on SRBs per panicle, MNSSr: mean number of spikelets on a SRB, PN: number of panicles per hill, RRG: ratio of ripened grain, TGW: 1,000 grain weight of brown rice, BRR: brown/rough rice ratio. Continuous arrows and dotted arrows indicate the significant and no significant effect, respectively. The arrow thickness means proportion of the effect. ** and ns mean significant at 1% level and no significant by path analysis, respectively.
