Abstract:

Fourteen castor genotypes including two checks GC 3 and GCH 7 were grown in irrigated condition with recommended agronomic practices. The seeds were harvested at stage of their physiological maturity. The soil properties, seed quality parameters, fatty acid profile, ricinoleic acid were analysed as per standard methods. The highest value of 100 seed wt 39.0 g was determined in genotype RG 380 and the highest seed yield was found in RG 63 (4987 kg/ha). The highest seed oil content was determined in RG 311, RG 330 genotypes which was 50.7 % and 50.6%, respectively. Ricinoleic acid, the predominant monounsaturated fatty acid varied among castor genotypes from 85.10 (RG 311) to 89.83 (RG 357). In the present study, the ricinoleic acid content was significantly negatively correlated with palmitic acid (r = -0.869**); stearic acid (r = -0.877**); oleic acid (r = -0.967**); linoleic acid (r = -0.978**) and with linolenic acid (r = -0.676**). The Oleic (MUFA) / Ricinoleic acid ratio among the all 14 genotypes varied from 0.037 (RG 357) to 0.057 (RG 311). The present study is vital for selecting male parent for developing castor hybrids for high ricinoleic acid.
