Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out during the year 2017-18 at College of Horticulture, Dr. Y.S.R Horticultural University, Venkataramannagudem, West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. The experiment consisted of 10 crossandra genotypes, laid out in randomized block design with three replications under open conditions. The observations were recorded on various vegetative, flowering, yield and quality parameters in which the genotype Arka Shravya exhibited superiority in parameters like plant height (56.97 cm), fresh weight of the plant (80.83 g), number of spikes per plot (3121.92) and number of florets per spike (53.67), whereas, Arka kanaka showed the more number of primary branches (3.62), secondary branches (3.61) and longest shelf life (3.33 days) while, Kadiyam Local 2 found to be earliest in number of days for first flower opening in spike (71.00 days) as compared to check and other genotypes. The genotypes Arka Ambara and Nilakottai local recorded more weight of 100 florets (9.89 g) and more number of days for final flower opening in spike (110.00 days) respectively whereas genotype ACS-2 recorded more number of flowers per 10 g weight (328.00) as compared to check and other genotypes.
