Abstract:

Forty four genotypes of amaranth spp were evaluated during kharif and rabi seasons of 2015 – 16 at University of Horticultural Sciences, Bagalkot. Observations were recorded on plant height at 15 DAS (cm), plant height at 30 DAS (cm), stem diameter (cm), leaf length (cm), leaf breadth (cm), petiole length (cm), leaf to stem ratio, leaf dry matter content (%), stem dry matter content (%) and total dry matter content (%). The results revealed statistically significant differences among genotypes for all traits at both kharif and rabi seasons. High GCV and PCV were observed for plant height at 15 DAS (cm), plant height at 30 DAS (cm), stem diameter (cm), leaf length (cm), leaf breadth (cm), leaf to stem ratio and stem dry matter content (%). High estimates of heritability coupled with high genetic advance were recorded for plant height at 30 DAS, plant height at 15 DAS, stem diameter (cm), leaf length (cm), leaf to stem ratio and stem dry matter content (%). The result of present investigation, indicating that additive gene effects were operating for these characters and selection pressure could be applied on them for plant growth and yield improvement.
