Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Estimates of variability studies for various leaf yield attributing traits in kale (Brassica oleracea L. var. acephala)” comprising of thirty genotypes was carried out at Vegetable Research Farm, Division of Vegetable Science & Floriculture, FOA, Chatha, SKUAST-J, Main campus, Chatha to estimate variability for 12 traits during the year 2015-16 and 2016-17. The field experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications, spaced at 60 cm × 45 cm. The observations were recorded on five randomly selected tagged plants. The analysis of variance of pooled data revealed significant differences among the genotypes for all the characters studied. Based on the mean performance genotypes namely SJK-02, SJK-03 SJK-04 and SJK-05 were high yielding with regard to number of leaves per plant, number of pickings per plant, duration of pickings and leaf yield per plant & SJK-19 was also found to be best performers for mean leaf weight per plant. Genotypes namely SJK-10 was found to be the earliest for days to first leaf picking. Thus, revealing that substantial amount of variability in present for various traits among the kale genotypes studied and therefore can be further exploited in further kale improvement programme.
