Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of seven promising potato cultivars for growth, yield attributes, yield and grades under Northern Telangana Zone. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications and seven treatments during rabi 2017-18 at Horticultural Research Station, Adilabad. There is significant variation among the varieties in the growth, yield attributes, yield and grades of potato. Highest per cent of plant emergence was reported in Kufri Chandramukhi and Kufri Jyothi (100%). Kufri Surya reported maximum plant height at 30, 60 and 90 DAP (45.23, 70.76 and 65.33 cm respectively). Kufri Chipsona-3 and Kufri Badshah reported maximum number of branches per plant at 60 and 90 DAP. Maximum number of compound leaves per plant were produced by Kufri Chipsona-3 at 60 and 90 DAP. Kufri Surya reported maximum fresh weight of tuber per plant (832 g) and tuber yield (29.86 t/ha). The highest per cent of Grade-B tubers were produced by Kufri Surya followed by Kufri Chandramukhi, Kufri Khyati and Kufri Chipsona-3. The results of the study indicate that Kufri Surya, Kufri Khyati and Kufri Chipsona-3 have the potential to grow successfully in Northern Telangana Zone.
