Abstract:
Cassava or tapioca (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is one of the most important tuber crops and widely grown as staple food in many countries due to its edible roots. Three short duration cassava genotypes along with two checks viz. Sree Jaya and Local were evaluated under five locations of East Godavari district during 2016-17 and 2017-18 with an objective of to identify the suitable short duration cassava variety for Andhra Pradesh. The results revealed that there are significant differences were observed between the genotypes for all the studied parameters. The genotype ‘TCa 12-9’ has recorded maximum yield in three locations whereas the check Sree Jaya has registered maximum yield in two locations. The maximum average pooled tuber yield per hectare was recorded in TCa 12-9 (35.05 t/ha) followed by Sree Jaya (31.09 t/ha). The results of the experiment revealed that the genotype ‘TCa 12-9’ was found to be promising and suitable for coastal Andhra Pradesh.
