Abstract:
A Field experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2018 at Vegetable Research Farm, Kalyanpur, Department of Vegetable Science, C. S. Azad University of Agriculture & Technology Kanpur, U.P. The soil of the experimental field was sandy loam texture having pH of 7.3. Soil is moderately fertile being low in available organic carbon (0.34%) and medium in available nitrogen (172 kg N ha-1), available phosphorus (13.8 kg N ha-1) and available potash (182 kg N ha-1). Experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) replicated thrice with thirteen different onion accessions as treatments viz. KLO-1, KLO-2, KLO-3, KLO-4, KLO-5, KLO-6, KLO-7, KLO-8, KLO-9, KLO-10, KLO-11 with two checks i.e. Bhima Shakti (C) and Agrifound Light Red (C). The results showed that Polar diameter (cm) and Equatorial diameter (cm) was found highest in KLO-3. Neck thickness (cm) was recorded maximum in Bhima Shakti. KLO-9 observed maximum A- grade bulbs percentage, Bolter bulbs (%) and Double bulbs (%). Maximum B- grade bulbs percentage was recorded by KLO-8 where as KLO-4 recorded maximum C- grade bulbs percentage. Maximum Average bulb weight (g), Total yield (q/ha) and Marketable yield (q/ha) was recorded in KLO-6.
