Genotype screening and character assosiation studies in indeginous genotypes of ridge gourd [Luffa acutangula (Roxb.) L.]

Author(s): Hirdesh Yadav, SK Maurya, Sujit Kumar and Pooja
Abstract:
Forty two genotypes of ridge gourd were screened and studied for character association during summer season, 2013. Out of forty two, monoecious genotypes PCPGR-7446, PCPGR-3112, PCPGR-5563 were found earlier in first fruit harvesting i.e. 54.20, 53.58 and 53.50, respectively than the best check (Pant-Torai-1). However, Genotypes (hermaphrodite ridge gourd) PCPGR-3239, PCPGR-3715, PCPGR-5991 were found earlier in first fruit harvesting i.e. 48.41, 48.15, 47.71, respectively than the best check (Satputia). Highest fruit yield (q/ha) was recorded in monoecious genotypes PCPGR-3711 followed by PCPGR-3233, PCPGR-3704, PCPGR-7267, PCPGR-7447 which were 119.33, 115.44, 113.31, 106.47, 99.91, respectively. While in genotypes of hermaphrodite ridge gourd, genotypes Satputia, PCPGR-3716, PCPGR-7275 and PCPGR-3702 were recorded significantly higher fruit yield (q/ha). In present investigation, Fruit yield perceived positive correlation with fruit length, number of fruits per plant and average fruit weight. This indicates that selection for these traits would be effective to improve fruit yield in ridge gourd.
