Abstract:

Twenty five genotypes of cauliflower along with one check Madhuri were evaluated for yield and some yield contributing morpho-physiological components in cauliflower. The analysis of variance revealed that mean squares due to genotypes were significant for all the traits highlighting the presence of sufficient genetic variability among the genotypes. The hybrids H 1 and H 4 were found superior for traits like days to initiation of curd from transplanting, days to marketable curd maturity from date of transplanting, curd compactness, curd solidity and harvest index and comparable in performance for marketable yield per plant, gross weight per plant and curd diameter with standard check Madhuri. On the basis of visual observation, position of leaves was categorized as Type No. 3 for all the hybrids except H 5 whereas for protection of leaves to curd majority of hybrids had semi-incurving leaves. In relation to curd quality, white colour and non riceyness were observed for most of the hybrids which is ideal for selection.
