Abstract:

A comparative study on 16 brinjal genotypes (15 hybrids and 1 open pollinated variety) for growth and yield attributing parameters was conducted at Indira Gandhi Krishi Viswavidhyalaya, Raipur, during rabi 2012-2013.The three tallest hybrids were 2012/BRRHYB-5 and 2012/BRRHYB-7 which are also the hybrids with most number of branches 120 days after transplanting. The fruits of Kashi Sandesh and Swarna Mani Black had thickest pericarp and are also statistically superior in fruit girth. In the present findings, the higher pericarp thickness may be due to the higher fruit girth. Pusa Hybrid-6 had maximum TSS (5.2 %). The maximum fruit weight was observed in 2012/BRRHYB-3(267.08 g) while minimum fruit weight was observed in 2011/ BRRHYB-7 (25.2 g). 2011/BRRHYB-7 and 2012/BRRHYB-4 were hybrids with high number of fruits per plant and are also the hybrids with smallest fruits in terms of fruit girth and pericarp thickness. Maximum yield in 2012/ BRRHYB-7 (472.92 q/ha) was due to higher weight of fruit (252.25 g) and yield per plant (2.27 kg), whereas in 2012/ BRRHYB-4 higher yield per hectare (446.61 q/ha) was attributed to its higher number of fruits per plant (44.73) and yield per plant (2.60 kg) even though it showed less individual fruit weight (88.42 g).
