Abstract:

The present study was carried out at ‘Chilli and Vegetable Research Unit’, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola, Maharashtra during winter season of 2013-14 to investigate growth, yield and qualitative parameters of various radish varieties. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (R.B.D.) with seven treatments and three replicatations. Seven varieties of radish, used for the study as treatments were viz., PusaDesi, PusaHimani, PusaReshmi, PusaChetaki, ArkaNishant, Japanese White, IHR-1-1. The growth parameters like plant height was maximum at 28.29 cm in ArkaNishant, while it was minimum at 22.70 cm in PusaHimani, also the chlorophyll content of leaves was 3.10 mg g-1 recorded in ArkaNishant. However, the minimum leaf area was 85.04 cm2 recorded in PusaHimani and minimum chlorophyll content of leaves was 1.61 mg g-1 in variety PusaDesi. The substantial variations in weight of total fresh weight of plant (190.06 g to 226.60 g) were observed. It was maximum in variety ArkaNishant, whereas, minimum in variety PusaDesi. The values of root diameter were minimum in IHR -1-1 (2.60 cm) and maximum (3.69 cm) in variety ArkaNishant. The maximum root yield per plot was 32.34 kg plot-1produced in variety ArkaNishant. The maximum moisture content of root (97.75%) was recorded in ArkaNishant variety. Whereas, it was found minimum (95.35%) in the variety IHR-1-1. The maximum crude fiber content of root was 1.71% in variety IHR-1-1 and minimum content recorded in the variety ArkaNishant was 1.32%.
