Abstract:
A survey on morphological variability of Jamun was conducted at five district of Bihar with objective to determine prominent genotype of Jamun for higher yield and related attributes. The data of twenty-two genotypes were recorded like leaf length, leaf width, leaf length-width ratio, internodal length, petiole length Inflorescence length, Inflorescence diameters, Inflorescence length-diameter ratio, number of panicles per tree, number of fruits per panicles, yield per panicle. The study found wide range of variation in Jamun. Maximum leaf length (20.71 cm) and internodal length (7.48 cm) were found in V3 while leaf- widh was found maximum in BK3 (7.69cm). Maximum leaf length-width ratio was found in S3 (3.76 cm) while petiole length was found maximum in V2 (2.57 cm). Maximum inflorescence length was found in BG1 (16.18 cm). Maximum inflorescence diameters was found in BK1 (6.65 cm), maximum inflorescence length- diameter ratio was found in V4 (4.04 cm), maximum number of panicles per tree were recorded in BK3 (880), number of fruits per panicles were recorded highest in BK3 (37.61 cm) while maximum yield per panicle was recorded in BK3 (0.45kg). On the basis of overall performance, BK3 genotypes were found to be most promising and best performing genotypes.
