|Title:||EVALUATION OF BACTERIAL WILT RESISTANT LINES OF BRINJAL (Solanum melongena L.) UNDER MID HILL CONDITIONS OF HIMACHAL PRADESH|
|Abstract:||The present investigation entitled “Evaluation of bacterial wilt resistant lines of brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) under mid hill conditions of Himachal Pradesh” was carried out at the Experimental Farm of the Department of Vegetable Science and Floriculture, CSK HPKV Palampur during the kharif season of 2016 to study the genetic variability of brinjal and to identify the promising lines. Twenty seven lines including two checks Arka Nidhi and Hisar Shyamal were evaluated in Randomized Block Design with three replications for genetic analysis and with two replications for evaluation of lines under zero budget natural farming conditions. Data were recorded on yield and related horticultural traits including bacterial wilt incidence. The analysis of variance indicated significant differences among lines for all the traits studied. On the basis of marketable yield per plant, other component traits and wilt resistance lines BRBWRES-1 and BRBWRES-2 among the long type, SM 6-7 among the oblong type and Hisar Shyamal among the round type have been identified as promising lines for cultivation in mid hill conditions of Himachal Pradesh. High magnitude of PCV and GCV coupled with high heritability and high genetic advance was observed for number of marketable fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit weight, fruit diameter, number of marketable fruits per node, marketable fruit yield per plant and harvest duration. Correlation analysis indicated that fruit yield can be enhanced through fruit length (cm), fruit weight (g), number of marketable fruits per plant, number of primary branches per plant, plant height (cm) and harvest duration (day). Path analysis revealed that number of marketable fruits per plant had the maximum positive direct effect on marketable yield per plant followed by fruit weight. In the zero budget natural farming experiment, BRBWRES-1 and BRBWRES-2 among the long type, SM 6-7 and Muktakeshi among the oblong type and Hisar Shyamal among the round type were found to be promising lines.|
