Abstract:

The present study entitled “Evaluation of thirty amaranthus genotypes (Amaranthus tricolor L.) for different biometric characters” was carried out in the Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics, College of Agriculture, Vellayani during 2016-2018, with an objective to evaluate the amaranthus genotypes in terms of yield and other yield attributing characters and to assess the variability. The study was conducted with thirty genotypes and evaluated for thirteen characters. The genotype Madhur local (A22) recorded highest yield plant-1(125.926g) and least incidence of leaf blight. The genotypes showed varied responds towards different characters studied which concluded the presence of high variability exists in the germplasm of amaranthus, which could be exploited through selection and further breeding programme.
