Abstract:

Present investigation entitled “Agronomic Evaluation of Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas L.) Germplasm’ was carried out in the Department of Horticulture, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur to evaluate yield and other related agronomic variation in sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.) germplasm”. In this research, sixteen diversified sweet potato germplasm were evaluated under randomized block design with three replications. The result reveled maximum tuber length (25.11cm) in ‘Sree Nandini’, maximum tuber diameter (75.33 mm) in ‘Sree Vardhini’, maximum tuber number per vine (10.13) in ‘ST-10’, maximum tuber weight (223.60 g) in ‘H-109-2’, maximum tuber yield per vine (733.25 g/vine) in CO-3-4 and maximum tuber yield per ha (40.73 t ha-1) in CO-3-4. However, Overall with respect to agronomic character i.e. ‘CO-3-4’ found to be superior over other genotypes.
