Abstract:

The experiment was conducted under AICRP on Potato at Horticultural Research and Extension Station, Somanahallikaval, Hassan for three consecutive years from 2014-2016 during Kharif season to know their yield potentiality and late blight disease tolerance capability of 12 different promising varieties. The varieties viz., Kufri Jyoti, Kufri Himalini, Kufri Bahar, Kufri Gaurav, Kufri Garima, Kufri Pushkar, Kufri Badshah, Kufri Khyati, Kufri Pukhraj, Kufri Surya, Kufri Ashoka and Kufri Lauvkar were evaluated under natural epiphytotic conditions. Out of twelve varieties evaluated, Kufri Himalini recorded significantly highest marketable tuber yield of 22.23 t/ha and total tuber yield of 24.17 t/ha at 90 days after sowing with least percentage of late blight incidence (3.76 %) followed by Kufri Jyoti recorded highest marketable tuber yield of 16.39 t/ha and total tuber yield of 17.95 t/ha with 5.40 per cent late blight incidence at 90 days after sowing. Therefore a variety Kufri Himalini could be recommended for commercial cultivation due to its high yield potential and late blight tolerance in Hassan district of Karnataka. Further to popularize a variety Kufri Himalini front line demonstrations were also conducted at various farmers fields of Hassan district.
