Abstract

Eight improved cultivars viz; VL-1, VL-3, Arka Niketan, Arka Kalyan, Pusa Red, Pusa White flat, Pusa Hybrid 107 and Pusa Hybrid 102 were tested in a randomized block Design with four replications for two years to study their performance under agro-climatic conditions of Jabalpur (M.P.). The results revealed that variety Pusa Hybrid 102 recorded significantly highest yield along with maximum plant height, number of leaves/plant, width of bulb, weight of bulb and dry matter content. Variety Pusa White flat produced bulb yield next to it with highest TSS content. Remaining varieties Pusa Red, VL-3, Arka Niketan, Pusa Hybrid 107, VL-1 and Arka Kalyan exhibited bulb yield in decreasing order.
