Effects of Variety and Growing Condition on Yield and Quality of Carrot Seed
Keywords:Growing condition, Quality seed, Stecklings, Yield
Different varieties of carrot and growing conditions of stecklings showed highly significant influence all most all the parameters studied. The highest seed yield (1321.53 kg/ha) was recorded from Brasilia Agroflora and the quality of seed (germination 83.20% and seed vigour index 12.21) was produced from the same variety, while the lowest seed yield (1193.70 kg/ha) and germination (79.42%) were obtained from New Kuroda. The net covered stecklings were recorded the highest seed yield (1495.33 kg/ha) and the quality of seed (germination 86.93% and seed vigour index 13.17) was produced from the same condition, while the lowest seed yield (1047.14 kg/ha) and germination (75.77%) were obtained from polythene covered stecklings. In case of combined effect, the highest seed yield (1576.07 kg/ha) was recorded from Brasilia Agroflora with net covered stecklings and that of the lowest (1000.10 kg/ha) from New Kuroda with polythene covered stecklings.
