Abstract:

An investigation was laid out in cashew research station under AICRP on cashew Ranasinghapur, Bhubaneswar, Khurda during the year 2015-2017, to study the variability in biometric parameters of thirty land races of cashew such as plant height, plant girth, canopy spread in east –west and north-south direction, canopy area and Yield in Bhubaneswar condition. It was found that the plant height varied from 3.47m in RP-6 to maximum of 7 m in Tapanga, The girth of plant was maximum in RP-3(95.40) cm and significantly superior to all treatments and minimum was recorded in RP-6 is (46.50 cm), The canopy spread was measured in East-West and North-South direction and significant variation was observed among the treatments, The canopy spread was maximum in East-West and North-South direction in Dutiya Nayapalli (9.5m) and minimum in Dhauli (4.5m). The canopy area of Dutiya Nayapalli was recorded 70.73 per m2 and minimum was recorded in Dhauli (18.56 per m2) and the highest yield was recorded (15.7kg in BH-85 and minimum yield recorded was 1.4 kg in RP-3. BH-5 was found significantly superior to all other genotypes. Hence Production of elite genotypes is one of the main mandates of crop improvement programme and potential promising cashew genotypes are recommended for cultivation.
