Abstract:
An investigation was carried out in ZAHRS, Babbur farm, Hiriyur during 2016- 2017 <em>rabi</em> season for evaluation of Coriander (<em>Coriandrum sativum</em> L.) genotypes for growth, yield and quality under central dry zone of Karnataka. The experiment was laid out in the Randomized Complete Block Design with 20 genotypes and were replicated thrice. Significant differences were observed among genotypes for all the characters under study. The results revealed that, Rcr-475 recorded maximum plant height (70.27 cm), number of primary branches per plant (7.33), number of umbels per plant (28.13), number of umbellets per umbel (5.50), number of seeds per umbellet (5.70), seed yield per plant (6.37 g), seed yield per hectare (16.83 q), highest test weight (14.53 g) and plant spread (645 cm<sup>2</sup>). The genotype DCC-4 took minimum number of days for first flowering (39.33 days) and maximum essential oil content (0.8%) was recorded in Acr-1and Rcr-728. It might be concluded from the study Rcr-475, Rcr-446, Rcr-41, Co-4, Dcc-4 and Acr-1 were identified as best performing genotypes and offer a good scope of selection for desired traits.
