Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design at Safflower Research Station, VNMKV, Parbhani. Twenty genotypes of safflower were used as source material for study. It was aimed to determine the effect of safflower aphid on biometric parameters. For this purpose in the research, plant height, number of branches, number of capitula, biological yield, 100 seed weight, oil content were recorded. According to result, plant height ranged from from 58.75 cm to 86.80 cm, number of branches ranged from. 56 cm to 8.30 cm, number of capitula ranged from 30.15-13.00, biological yield ranged from (3.90 q ha-1) -(1.22 q ha-1),100 seed weight ranged from 6.20 g) - (4.10 g) and oil content ranged from (40.91%) - (28.28%). According to the study results Among the 20 genotypes RVS-18-01 recorded maximum plant height (86.80 cm), highest number of branches was recorded in Bhima (8.30), maximum number of capitula was observed in ISF-116 (30.15), highest biological yield was recorded in PBNS-184 (3.90 q ha-1), highest 100 seed weight was recorded in PBNS-183 (6.20 g) and highest oil content recorded in ISF-87- 15 (40.91%).
