Abstract:
Onion (Allium cepa L.) belongs to the family Alliaceae, is an herbaceous bulbous plant with biennials for seed production and annual for bulb production. Onion is a very good source of vitamin C, K, B1, B6, folic acid, chromium, dietary fiber, calcium, biotin and vanadium. A research trial was conducted at Horticulture Research cum Instructional Farm, Department of Vegetable Science, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.) during rabi season of 2020-2021 to evaluate different onion genotypes for growth, yield and quality parameters in the plain region of Chhattisgarh. The experimental was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) having three replications. Results regarding the growth, yield and quality parameters of onion revealed that the highest values recorded are plant establishment % (in genotype RVA-20-01), plant height, leaf length (in genotype RVB-20-08), thickness of leaves, double bulbs percentage (in genotype RVB-20-02), number of leaves per plant, pseudo stem thickness, polar diameter (in genotype RVB-20-17), equatorial diameter of bulb (in genotype RVB-20-08), TSS (in genotype RVA-20-09), duration of maturity (RVB-20-04), thickness of bulb, bulbs weight, bolting percentage, rotting percentage of bulbs (in genotype RVB-20-10), fresh weight of bulbs, marketable bulb yield, total bulb yield (in genotype RVB-20-11), A grade bulbs (in genotype RVB-20-08), B grade bulbs (in genotype RVB-20-06), C grade bulbs (in genotype RVB-20-09).
