For quantitative traits (components of plants productivity) the general traditional hypothesis about the mechanisms of genotypic correlations (GC) it is - linkage of genes or pleiotropy -- has been rejected by this paper -- and epigenetic (ecological-genetic) nature of GC has been experimentally proved.
