Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the variability for ascorbic acid, beta carotene and minerals content (phosphorous, potassium and calcium) in knolkhol (Brassica oleracea var. gongylodes L.) genotypes under sub-tropical condition of Jammu, at Vegetable Research Farm, SKUAST-J, Main campus, during the year 2016-17. High heritability (>70%) was estimated for all the quality traits and moderate for marketable knob weight/plant. High genetic advance as percentage of mean coupled with moderate to high heritability were obtained for beta carotene contents of knob, calcium contents of knob and marketable knob weight/plant indicating thereby that the selection based on phenotypic performance could be effectively utilized for isolation of superior genotypes. Moderate to high heritability and moderate genetic advance was observed for calcium contents of leaves, phosphorous contents of knob, ascorbic acid contents of knob and leaves and beta carotene contents of leaves indicates the involvement of both additive and non-additive genes.
