Abstract:

Vegetables play a very important role in our daily diet. As an unconventional vegetable “Broccoli” is yet to gain the desired popularity in our country. However, considerable attention is being given on production technology of broccoli which is rich in nutrient content and greater yield potential. But yet no systematic work has been done on evaluation and commercialization of high value nutrient rich varieties of broccoli. Therefore, the present study was conducted during rabi season 2015-16 at Horticulture Instructional Farm, CP College of Agriculture, SD Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat to find out performance of different varieties with respect to growth, yield and quality under north Gujarat conditions comprising four varieties [Palam Samridhi (V1), Palam Vichitra (V2), Pusa Broccoli KTS-1 (V3) and Palam Haritika (V4)]. The treatments were tested in Spilt Plot Design with three replications. Observations were recorded on growth, yield and quality parameters. The results revealed that the treatment V2 (Palam Vichitra) recorded significantly maximum plant height at 45 DAT (40.77 cm), number of leaves at 45 DAT (11.11), fresh weight of head (311.9 g), maximum yield per plot (4.67 kg), yield per hectare (188.7 q), highest head diameter (15.00 cm), maximum dry matter percent (20.68%), protein content (3.53%), potassium content (507.7 mg) and calcium content (47.05 mg). While significantly maximum plant height at harvest (63.07 cm), number of leaves at harvest (22.71) and maximum plant spread at 45DAT [E-W (49.53 cm) and N-S (46.88 cm)] and at the stage of head harvest [E-W (60.94 cm) and N-S (60.94 cm)] were recorded with the treatment V4 (Palam Haritika) and the treatment V1 (Palam Samridhi) recorded minimum days taken for head initiation (50.49 days) and for first head harvest (71.11 days).
