Abstract:

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) is an important seed spice cultivated in India. The effort was made to cultivate and evaluate the different genotypes of coriander in hill zone (Zone-9) of Karnataka. The Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka comes under Zone-9, which receives 2500-3000 mm rainfall annually and paddy is grown as a rainfed crop during Kharif season. After the harvest of paddy the land is kept vacant, even though there is sufficient amount of residual moisture is available. Hence, an attempt was made to introduce coriander as spice crop in hill zone of Karnataka. Identification of high yielding genotypes/varieties suitable for hill zone (Zone-9) of Karnataka is very important for improving the adoptability and productivity of the crop. Evaluation of genotypes for yield and quality will help for crop improvement programme. Hence, the present study was undertaken at College of Horticulture, Sirsi during rabi 2015 to know the performance and adaptability of promising genotypes for hill zone. Among the fifteen genotypes evaluated with respect to yield and quality, the genotypes DCC-28 (6.43 q) and DCC-36 (5.73 q) recorded maximum seed yield per hectare and the genotypes DCC-33 (0.27 %) and DCC-27 (0.26 %) produces higher essential oil content. These genotypes can be used successfully for further breeding programmes.
