Abstract:

The present investigation entitled analysis of genetic diversity in kale genotypes of Jammu and Kashmir region based on morphological descriptors was carried out in order to reveal the available genetic diversity present in kale genotypes collected from the different kale growing regions of the J&K state including Jammu, Kashmir and Leh and to select the elite genotypes that possess superior leaf yield attributing traits and quality traits. Remarkable variability was present among genotypes for various leaf attributes. However, there is probability of duplicates being present in above collection. Hence, morphological characterization is resorted to identify the duplicates. Therefore, these collected genotypes were laid out at Vegetable Experimental Farm, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Chatha, Jammu and data were recorded on traits namely plant height revealed that 20 (66.67%) genotypes had tall plant height, 5(16.67%) genotypes had medium height and 5(16.67%) genotypes are of short height. Plant shape at peak leaf picking stage revealed that 13(43.34%) were found to be dome shaped, 10 were of inverted pyramid shape and (23.34%) and 7 (23.34%) genotypes were of column shape. Leaf blade color at fully developed leaf stage revealed that 25 (83.34%) genotypes among 30 were found to be green in color while 4 (13.34%) genotypes were blue-green in color and only one genotype was found to be of purple color. Leaf type was categorized as entire or lobed with lobed observed in 14 (46.67%) genotypes and entire in 16 (53.34%) genotypes. Leaf shape showed variation from very narrow elliptic, narrow elliptic to elliptic with 11 (36.67%) genotypes very narrow elliptic and 4 (13.34%) being elliptic.
