Abstract:
The present study entitled “Evaluation of fatty acid profile and nutritional quality of some linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) varieties grown under sodic soil ” was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm and analysis was carried out in the Laboratory of Department of Agricultural Biochemistry, A.N.D. University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.) during Rabi season in the year 2017-18 and 2018-19. Ten varieties of linseed NDL-1 NDL-3 Parvati, Shikha, Shubhra, Shekhar, Chambal, T-397, Mukta, and Garima, were collected from department of Genetics and plant breeding of this University, and used as experimental material in the field trail. The seeds of linseed varieties were sown in Completely Randomized Design with three replications on 2017-18 and 2018-19. The row to row and plant to plant spacing was kept 10 cm and 30 cm, respectively. The seeds were sown at the rate of 30-40 kg per hectare. All agronomical practices were adopted to achieve a good crop. After harvesting the seeds of each variety were collected separately and used for the analysis various Biochemical parameters. The seeds of each varieties were ground into fine powder stage and stored in air tight container for further Biochemical parameters such as protein content, methionine content, tryptophan content, lysine content. The data obtained in the experiment showed the Morphological characters such as Biochemical contents were recorded in variety NDL-3 and Garima in both the year. In the total protein content was ranged from 21.60 to 24.13 per cent and 21.63 to 24.17 per cent, metionine 0.39 to 0.49 and .40 to 0.51 (g/16gN), tryptophan 0.33 to 0.44 and 0.34 to 0.45(g/16gN), lysine 0.83 to 0.94 and 0.85 to 0.95 (g/16gN)
