Abstract:

A field investigation as carried out with 35 genotypes of brinjal at Department of Vegetable Science, SKLTSHU, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad during Rabi, 2017-18. The RBD ANOVA revealed highly significant differences among the genotypes for all the traits indicating the presence of sufficient variability in the experimental material. Selection of suitable parents is an important criterion for success of crop improvement program. Mean performance of germplasm under study showed that the IC-136148 recorded the highest plant height (104.19 cm), number of fruits per plant (26.33), average fruit weight (0.19 kg), fruit yield per plant (3.07 kg) and total phenol content (59.23 mg/ 100g). The genotype IC-136546 recorded the highest number of branches per plant and IC-136237 for days to first flowering (36.55 days) and days to 50 percent flowering (37.67 days) were also reported. The genotype, IC-136096 recorded the highest number of flower clusters per plant (24.27). The highest number of fruits per cluster of 2.50 and days to last harvest (157.67) was recorded by the genotype IC-136231. The genotype IC-136311 recorded less number of days for first harvest (51.67days), IC-136196 for fruit length (16.90 cm) and IC-136184 registered highest values for fruit width (6.49 cm). The highest ascorbic acid content of 7.44 mg/100g was recorded with the genotype IC-136176. The genotype, IC-136309 in 12.93 percent was found to be tolerant to shoot and fruit borer infestation. The germplasm identified in the present study can be suitable utilized for varietal release and as parents in breeding programmes for further improvement of the traits.
