Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at Horticulture farm, College of Horticulture, S. D. Agricultural University, Jagudan, Mehsana, Gujarat, to find out the performance of different varieties of carrot (Daucus carota L.) with respect yield, quality and chemical compositions under varying sowing times during rabi season 2017-18, comprising three dates of sowing 1st October (d1), 15th October (d2) and 1st November (d3) and four varieties Patan Local (v1), Pusa Vasuda (v2), Pusa Rudhira (v3) and Gujarat Dantiwada Carrot 1 (GDC 1) (v4). The total twelve treatment combinations were tested in Split Plot Design with three replications. Observations recorded on growth, yield and quality parameters. Among the date of sowing, 15th October (d2) recorded significantly maximum weight of root (72.10 g), root yield per plot (6.44 kg), root yield per ha (20.44 t), productivity per day (247.70 kg), root length (22.31 cm), collar diameter (37.62 mm), volume of root (75.32 cc), total soluble solid (8.00°B), reducing, non-reducing and total sugar (4.40, 3.50 and 7.90 %, respectively). All parameters showed a decreasing trend as sowing date was delayed. Variety Pusa Vasuda (v2) recorded maximum weight of root (70.24 g), root yield per plot (6.23 kg), root yield per ha (19.78 t), productivity per day (241.48 kg), root length (23.04 cm), collar diameter (37.96 mm), volume of root (71.12 cc), total soluble solid (8.21°B), reducing, non-reducing and total sugar (4.64, 3.49 and 8.13 %, respectively).
