Abstract:
A total number of 82 germplasm including two checks viz. Kiran and Garima, were sown in the field of Research Farm Nawabganj, Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and technology Kanpur, during rabi season of 2015-16. The harvested seeds were analysed for fatty acids and iodine value were worked out among these traits. The fatty acids as well as iodine value were significantly influenced with genotypes under study.
A wide variability of these traits were observed in studied germplasm. The Palmitic acid ranged from 5.06% to 11.36%, Stearic acid ranged from 3.7% to 8.29%, Oleic acid ranged from 20.5% to 37.1%, Linoleic acid ranged from 8.9% to 17%, linolenic acid ranged from 35.7% to 58.65% and iodine value ranged from 151.9 to 190. The significant difference in germplasm in respect of oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid and iodine value were observed against local check variety ‘Garima’. Oleic acid exhibited negative relation with linolenic acid and iodine value.
