The investigation was undertaken during the year of Kharif seasons 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Shaheed Gundadhoor College of Agriculture and Research Station (IGKV) Kumhrawand, Jagdalpur, Bastar (C.G.). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with ten genotypes of tikhur with four replications. The genotypes were grown randomly in each replication/block in a total of 40 plots of 2.25m × 2 m each containing 40 plants per plot. Observations were recorded from five randomly selected sample plants in each treatment and observed mean value used for statistical analysis. The genotypes showed highest mean performance under growth characters viz., IGDMT-10-1 for plant height, number of leaves per plant, leaf length and leaf breadth. Yield attributing characters genotypes IGBJT-10-1 for number of mother rhizome per plant, IGSJT-10-2 and IGBT-10-4 number of primary rhizome, IGDMT-10-1 for number of secondary rhizome per plant, IGBT-10-4 and IGSJT-10-2 for weight of primary rhizome per plant, IGBT-10-4 for weight of mother rhizome per plant,IGSJT-10-2 for length and thickness of primary rhizome. The IGSJT-10-2 showed highest mean performance for total rhizome yield 34.38 t.ha-1 followed by genotype IGBT-10- 4(31.29 t.ha-1) and IGSJT-10-1(29.71 t.ha-1).
