Abstract:

Cultivated species of jute (Corchorus olitorius L. and Corchorus capsularis L.) are distinct in their growth and characteristics related to dry matter and fibre yield. The present study was planned to evaluate 77 varieties of jute including two checks, each of C. capsularis and C. olitorius. Characterizations of genotypes of both the species were also carried out on the basis of five marketable traits with their correlation and cluster analysis of them to study the diversity pattern, based on these characters. However they showed considerable variation which indicates that overall genetic variability in the population and there is enough scope of selection. The most interesting parameter being the dry fibre weight and fibre%, was found to be more in C.olitorius lines (mean fibre weight was 11.71g and mean fibre% was 6.82%) and OIJ-07 recorded the highest fibre% of 8.28 and also the highest fibre wt of 15.26g. In case of C.capsularis the mean fibre % was less (mean 5.83%). When the correlation was studied about the fibre wt with plant height, basal diameter, green wt and fibre %, it represented a strong positive correlation with the green weight as expected and in both the cases it was around 0.8-0.9 depicting that the green weight can be taken as indirect index for selection in the advance materials.
