Abstract:

In brinjal, lower marketable yield could be attributed to susceptibility of genotypes to shoot and fruit borer. The present investigation in brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) was undertaken during kharif season of 2016 for high marketable yield and fruit borer resistance. Hundred brinjal genotypes along with two checks were evaluated in Augmented design in University of Horticultural and Agricultural Sciences, Shivamogga. Analysis of variance revealed high significant differences among genotypes for fifteen out of nineteen characters studied. High estimates of PCV, GCV, heritability coupled with high genetic advance were observed for fruit weight, number of fruits per cluster and shoot borer infestation. Hence indicating high variability for these traits and selection for these traits may be effective.
