Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out during kharif 2015-16 at Horticultural College and Research Institute, Dr. Y.S.R. Horticultural University, Venkataramannagudem (A.P) to study the performance of orange flesh sweet potato varieties to plant growth regulators for vegetative, flower, root tuber yield and quality characters. The results revealed that the spraying of GA3 @ 300 ppm showed maximum length of leaf lobe and leaf area in the variety ST-14. Flower characters like maximum number of flowers per plant and seed set percentage were recorded in the variety Kamala sundari by the application of 2, 4-D @ 15 ppm, while maximum number of seeds per capsule was recorded in the variety Kamala sundari by the application of GA3 @ 300 ppm. The maximum root tuber yield was recorded in the combination of V1C2 (ST-14 + GA3 @ 300 ppm) and highest total sugars was recorded in the combination of V2C2 (Kamala sundari + GA3 @ 300 ppm).
