Abstract:

An investigation was carried out on exploration and collection of native germplasm of Indian pennywort for assessment and utilization of existing variability present in the population. Totally thirty nine diverse accessions were collected from 22 talukas of eight districts of hill zone of Karnataka at an altitude ranging from 363 m to 1064 m above mean sea level. The collected accessions were morphologically characterized for 14 qualitative traits as per NBPGR descriptors revealed wide variability for all the morphological traits except leaf surface. Predominantly erect plant growth habit was observed as compared to semi erect and prostrate growth habit. Majority of the accessions exhibited good regenerabilty, rosette type of leaf arrangement medium sized, orbicular shaped with dentate margin and dark green coloured leaves. Considerable differences were also noticed for petiole and flower characteristics. Majority of the accessions were of medium sized, thin petioled with pink colour pigmentation at the base. Greenish pink stolon and pink flower colours were dominant with soft textured stolonsas compared to hard textured.
