Abstract:

A field investigation was undertaken in brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) during kharif, 2017 to identify potential parental combinations in order to have superior hybrids and extent of heterosis in F1 hybrid over mid parent and better parent during kharif. All the four F1 progeny, JC-1 x Khoruah-1, Brinjal-3 x JC-1, Brinjal-1 x PPL and Kuchia x JC-1 exhibited high mid parent and better parent heterosis for yield and yield attributing traits. Three hybrids namely, JC-1 x Khoruah-1, Brinjal-3 x JC-1 and Kuchia x JC-1 showed high negative better parent heterosis for days to first and 50% flowering except Brinjal-1 x PPL. All the four F1 progeny viz., JC-1 x Khoruah-1, Brinjal-3 x JC-1, Brinjal-1 x PPL and Kuchia x JC-1 were found to be promising for kharif season. Promising F1 hybrids could be utilized as high yielding varieties after systematic multi- location trials in different agro-climatic zones of Assam along with disease- and pest-resistance tests as well as quality tests.
