Abstract:
Field experiment was conducted at Horticultural Research Centre, H.N.B. Garhwal University, Srinagar- Garhwal, Uttarakhand (India) during rabi season 2014-15 to identify the suitable varieties for cultivation with high yield and quality traits using 22 varieties of radish (Raphanus sativus L.). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replication. The results are indicated that, the analysis of variance revealed highly significant differences among varieties for almost all the traits. The yield parameters showed that Snow White variety significantly maximum plant height (66.33 cm) and number of leaves (23.70). The maximum root diameter (5.91 cm) was observed in Pusa Mirdula and the maximum total weight of plant (435.31 g/plant), root yield per plot (30.56 kg) and root yield per hectare (509.28q) was recorded in variety of Evergreen. From nutritional point of view the variety Local 3 recorded highest TSS content of 6.13 OBrix. The variety J.U. recorded highest acidity (0.45 mg/100 g) and highest Vitamine C (27.14 mg/100 g) was found in Baramasi variety.
