Abstract:

A comparative study on 16 brinjal genotypes (15 hybrids and 1 open pollinated variety) for flowering and yield attributing parameters was conducted at Indira Gandhi Krishi Viswavidhyalaya, Raipur, during rabi 2012-2013. Pusa Hybrid-6 is found to be statistically superior in earliness over the other hybrids in days to 50% flowering (55.67) and days to first picking (83). Earliness is of economic importance as in case of vegetables, early crop fetch good price. Percent fruit set is highest in 2012/BRRHYB-4 (61.94%) which is also the highest bearing hybrid in terms of yield per plant (2.60kg). The maximum number of flowers and fruits per cluster was observed in 2011/BRRHYB-7 with 5.77 flowers per cluster and 3.53 fruits per cluster, but it had only 61.08% fruit set as against the maximum of 61.94% in 2012/BRRHYB-4. Brinjal hybrid 2011/BRRHYB-7 had 52.8 fruits per plant which is the highest number of fruits per plant during the whole fruiting season. Minimum number of fruits per plant (7.20) and subsequently, less yield per plant (1.25 kg) was observed in hybrid 2011/ BRRHYB-3. Maximum yield in 2012/ BRRHYB-7 (472.92 q/ha) was due to higher yield per plant (2.27 kg) and whereas in 2012/ BRRHYB-4 higher yield per hectare (446.61 q/ha) was attributed to its higher number of fruits per cluster (2.39), percentage fruit set (61.94%), number of fruits per plant (44.73) and yield per plant (2.60 kg) even though it showed less individual fruit weight (88.42g).
