Abstract: An experiment was conducted during kharif season in 2017. It was designed in randomized block design with three replications and 18 genotypes of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) to identify the most suitable potato variety for Keonjhar agro-climatic condition during kharif season under rainfed conditions. Potato genotypes were evaluated for different growth parameters, yield attributes and yield characters. Among the vartieties tested, maximum number of tubers/ plant were recorded in variety Phulbani Local (32.0) which was statistically superior to rest other varieties. Phulbani Local recorded maximum tuber yield of 17.6 t/ha with B:C ratio of 2.2, which was statistically superior to all other varieties. Among big sized potato varieties, Kurfi Sinduri (13.90 t/ha, 1.7) and Kufri Surya (13.0 t/ha, 1.6) produced higher yield per hectare and B:C ratio respectively. However, the variety 2000P-55 (4.6 t/ha) resulted the lowest yield per ha which was at par with Kufri Himsona (4.9 t/ha) and Kufri Sailaja (5.3 t/ha) with negative B:C ratio. So, Variety Phulbani Local, Kufri Sinduri and Kufri Surya can be cultivated successfully during kharif season in Keonjhar Agro-climatic condition.
