Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at experimental field of College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, Manipur during 2017-2018. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The treatment consisted of nine germplasms: CAUST-1, CAUST-2, AAUST-1, AAUST-2, AAUST-3, BCST-1, BCST-3, BCST-5 and BCST-13.The results of the experiment revealed that among the nine entries of swamp taro, the physiological parameters at 120 days after planting viz., leaf area index (0.98), harvest index (77.67%), net assimilation rate (0.00060g/m2/day), crop growth rate (1.249 g/m2/day) and relative growth rate (0.0049 g/g/day) were highest in CAUST-1. CAUST-1 exhibited the maximum caudex length (30cm), caudex diameter (6.44 cm) and caudex yield/plot (19.57 kg) while the treatment CAUST-2 recorded the maximum number of stolons (8.60) and maximum stolon length was recorded from BCST-1(64.71cm). Maximum stolons weight was recorded from CAUST-2 (194.49g). Quality analysis revealed CAUST-1 was the richest source of starch (8.77%) followed by AAUST-3 (7.86 %), while AAUST-1 registered the maximum dry matter content (15.99%).
