Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2018-2019 at Instructional Farm, Department of Vegetable Science, Faculty of Horticulture, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola to study the “Standardization of harvesting time for quality production of fennel genotypes (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.)” The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design (RBD) with with three replications and two factors viz. Factor “A” Genotypes, G1 (AF-101), G2 (AF-102), G3 (IC-598499) and G4 (IC-398122) and Factor “B” Days of harvesting, D1 (20DAF), D2 (30 DAF), D3 (40 DAF) and D4 (50 DAF). The various observations in respect of yield parameters, fennel yield per plant, fennel yield per plot and fennel yield per hectare were found to be maximum in genotype G2 (AF-102) and harvesting time D3 (40 DAF).

In respect of quality parameters, test weight and length of seed were found to be maximum in D4 (40 DAF). Whereas, test weight and length of seed were found non significant for different genotypes. However, recovery of fennel was significantly maximum in genotype G2 (AF-102) and D4 (50 DAF) and fibre content was significantly minimum in genotype G2 (AF-102) and D1 (20 DAF).

Interaction effect between different genotypes and days of harvesting were found to be significant in G2D3 i.e. AF-102 harvested at 40 DAF for fennel yield per plant, fennel yield per plot, fennel yield per hectare. Recovery of fennel was maximum in G2D4 i. e AF 102 harvested at 50 DAF and fibre content was minimum in G2D1 i.e. AF-102 harvested at 20 DAF. Whereas, test weight and length of seed was found to be non significant.

In respect of organoleptic taste, G3D2 i.e. IC - 598499 harvested at 30 DAF has scored maximum marks in terms of colour (4.87), flavour (4.90), aroma (4.54), texture (4.54) and taste (5.00) of seed.
