Author(s): Rathod KS, BJ Shete and VR Joshi
Abstract: A field experiment entitled, “Evaluation of rabi onion genotypes for morphological, characters” was conducted during rabi season, 2017-18 at “Scheme for Research on Onion Storage”, Department of Horticulture, Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri. Dist. Ahmednagar (Maharashtra), India. Evaluation of rabi onion genotypes for morphological characters for higher yield was also one of the important objective for study,
The experiment was carried out in Randomized Block Design with seventeen genotypes and one check variety i.e. N-2-4-1 treatments replicated three times.
The results indicated that the treatment T7 (RHROR–7), T10 (RHROR–10) and T11 (RHROR–11) significantly enhanced the morphological characters viz., plant height, polar diameter and equatorial diameter of bulb. The result also shows that, the important yield parameters like average bulb weight total bulb yield and total marketable yield in onion crop was recorded highest in genotypes T11 (23.61 kg/plot & 39.34 t/ha) followed by genotype T7 (23.51 kg/plot & 39.18 t/ha) and T10 (23.06 kg/plot & 38.43 t/ha).
Considering the above results, it could be concluded that, among the seventeen genotypes T7 (RHROR–7), T10 (RHROR–10) and T11 (RHROR–11) found promising for further evaluation.
