Evaluation of taro (Colocasia esculenta L.) genotypes for quantitative traits under Marathwada conditions

Author(s): YN Vinutha, AS Lohakare and SR Wankhede
Abstract: The present investigation was carried out during the year 2022-2023 with twenty one genotypes replicated thrice. Among different genotypes, maximum plant height (123.46 cm), number of leaves plant-1 (5.93), petiole length (119.09 cm), leaf area (1111.89 cm2), corm diameter (6.35 cm) and herbage yield per hectare (37.35 q ha-1) was noted in the genotype (G16) PBNT-1. While maximum number of suckers plant-1 (8.64) was observed in (G14) DPLT-14. The maximum number of corms plant-1 (2.27) and maximum weight of corms plant-1 (276.02 g) was observed in (G3) DPLT-3. The maximum total corm and cormel yield (256.82 q ha-1) was recorded in (G4) DPLT-4. The genotype (G12) DPLT-12 had maximum corm length (10.48 cm). Whereas, genotype (G5) DPLT- 5 recorded lowest values for above mentioned traits among other genotypes studied under Marathwada conditions.
