Abstract:
The research trial was carried out during the Kharif season of 2016 at “Central Experiment Station, Wakawali, Dist. Ratnagiri, Maharashtra to to estimate the moisture content in different genotypes of colocasia. The genotype NDB-22 recorded highest average corm weight (216.05 g) followed by Devkibai Walanga (183.39 g) and highest average cormel weight (49.14g) was observed in NDB-9 genotype. The highest leaf moisture content (91.37%) was observed in M-9-111 and it was at par with AC-20 (90.97%), Sree Pallavi (90.73%), Sawantwadi (90.23%), NDB-9 (90.23%), and M-12-429 (88.57%). While, the lowest moisture content was recorded in genotype BCC-11 (80.03%). The highest corm and cormel moisture content (83.50% and 80.43%, respectively) was recorded in NDB-22. There was non significant positive correlation (r = 0.251) between average weight of corm and moisture percentage and non significant negative correlation (r = -190) between the average weight of cormel and moisture content in cormel.
