Performance of taro (Colocasia esculenta L.) genotypes for qualitative traits under Marathwada conditions

Author(s): YN Vinutha, AS Lohakare and SR Wankhede
Abstract: The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 21 treatments replicated thrice. Taro genotypes with "Apex down" leaf position include G1-G4, G6, G8, G9, G11, G13, G14, G15, and G21. Those with "Cup shaped" are G5, G7, G10, G12, and G16-G20. For leaf blade color, G6-G9, G16-G19 and G21 are "Dark green", G1-G4, G10-G15 and G20 are "Green". Genotypes G4, G7, and G17 have "Green" petioles, G1-G3, G6, G8-G13, and G15 are "Light green", G16 and G18-G21 are "Brown", and G5 and G14 are "Yellow". Finally, G1-G4, G6, G7, and G9-G21 have "Dumb bell" corms, while G5 and G8 have "Conical" and "Round" corms respectively. Higher amount of reducing sugar (3.58%) and starch content (22.51%) was recorded in (G9) DPLT-9.
