Abstract:
An investigation was done at VRS, Rajendranagar (SKLTSHU), Southern Telangana Zone, Telangana State, India during November, 2020 – April, 2021 and evaluated the accomplishment of various white varieties of onion suitable for rabi season in Southern Telangana. Five entries W-355, Bhima Shweta, PKV White, Agri Found White and Palampur White were evaluated in the study. The entries were replicated four times and the design used was Randomized Block Design. Bulb shape of Bhima Shweta and Palampur White was oval and of W-355, PKV White and Agri Found White was round. The variety W-355 reported highly uniform sized bulbs (> 80%) and also recorded maximum average bulb weight (86.63 g), maximum marketable yield (44.89 t ha-1) and highest gross yield (45.91 t ha-1) followed by Palampur White. Minimum average bulb weight, lowest marketable and least gross yield was noticed in Agri Found White. Highest TSS was recorded in Palampur White (13.31o Brix) followed by Bhima Shweta and W-355. No double bulbs were noticed in Bhima Shweta and Agri Found White. Zero bolters were seen in W-355, Palampur white and Bhima Shweta. Zero rotten bulbs were seen in W-355, Bhima Shweta and PKV White. Thrips incidence (4.33) was lowest in W-355 followed by Palampur White. Minimum appearance of purple blotch disease (26.50) was noticed in W-355.
