Abstract:
An experiment was carried out on evaluation of buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum. Moench.) genotypes under Northern dry zone of Karnataka during rabi - 2019-20 at department of Plantation, Spices, Medicinal and Aromatic crops, College of Horticulture, Bagalkot. The experiment was laid out in Randomized complete block design (RCBD) with fifty treatments and two replications at 30 X 10 cm spacing under open field. Wide variation was observed among the genotypes for all morphological and yield traits. Among the fifty genotypes, EC-99947 took minimum days to germination (4.00) and showed maximum plant height (71.50 cm). The genotype IC 79147 took minimum days to 50 percent flowering (24.00). The genotype EC 286396 (62.62) was found to be early maturity. The genotype IC-313136 showed maximum number of branches (16.06), number of inflorescence (27.40), seed yield per plant (7.87g), seed yield per ha (17.49 q), straw yield per plant (6.28g), straw yield per hectare (13.94 q/ha) and protein (14.77%). The 1000 seed weight was highest in IC-79147 (3.40 g) and the genotype EC-99947 showed highest harvest index (54.65%). The maximum rutin content was observed in PRB 1 (406.66 mg/100g). Among the genotypes evaluated IC-313136 and IC-79147 were found suitable to grow under northern dry zone of Karnataka based on growth and yield attributes.
