Abstract:

The present study comprising of eleven hybrid cross combinations of oil palm was carried out at Horticultural Research Station, Vijayarai, West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh to evaluate bunch quality of oil palm hybrid cross combinations under Krishna-Godavari zone of Andhra Pradesh. The eleven tenera hybrid cross combinations of oil palm used were 128D x 291P, 124D x 266P, 18D x 32P, 35D x 291P, 65D x 111P, 104D x 98P, 82D x 266P, 109D x 291P, 115D x 291P, 148D x 98P and 220D x 98P and planted at a spacing of 9 m x 9 m in square system of planting in a randomized block design and replicated thrice under supplemented tube well irrigation. Bunch analysis has revealed that hybrid cross combination 115D x 291P has recorded significantly highest bunch weight (26.0 kg), fruit weight per bunch (16.0 kg), per cent of fruit weight to bunch (76.0%), per cent of moisture content of the fruit (58.7%), per cent of oil from wet mesocarp (53.08%) and per cent of oil from bunch (24.87%) coupled with significantly highest number of bunches per palm per year (8.5) and yield of fresh fruit bunches (26.5 t/ha). Based on the data analysis of yield and bunch quality parameters of different dura x pisifera cross combinations it could be concluded that 115D x 291P followed by 109D x 291P have been identified as precocious in bearing coupled with fresh fruit bunch yield and bearing good quality parameters.
