Abstract:

Twenty six genotypes were characterized based on their morphological characters as per DUS guidelines of castor viz., stem color, bloom, seed shape, plant type, leaf shape, type of internode, spike type, inflorescence spike type, seed coat color, branching habits, spike shape and capsule type. The characters triple bloom nature, medium plant type, elongated internode, conical spike shape, divergent branching pattern and oval seed shape were dominant in nature whereas, spike types, stem colour, capsule type, type of internode, inflorescence spike type showed more than one class of F1's from all the cross combinations, which indicated involvement of more than one gene and epistatic type of gene interaction for the inheritance of the character and expression of the character was also influenced by different genetic background of parents. The germplasm has shown great extent of morphological variability for all the traits observed.
