Performance of brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) parents and hybrids for yield and yield attributing characters under high altitude region of Andhra Pradesh
Ten parents (including seven lines and three testers), resulting twenty one hybrids and a check were evaluated for yield and yield attributing characters in brinjal at Horticultural research Station, Pandirimamidi, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh. The experiment was conducted during summer, 2014 in randomized block design with three replications. Among the parents used for investigation Pusa Shyamala, Heera and Gulabi were high yielding of 4.18, 3.32 and 2.84 kg per plant respectively. The hybrids Heera x Bhagyamathi, Heera x Shyamala and Heera x Gulabi recorded high yield of 5.35, 4.97 and 4.94 kg per plant respectively, while the check Ravaiyya recorded 2.28 kg per plant. Among the genotypes IC 090053 x Gulabi was the earliest genotype. Based on their performance parents can be used for further breeding programme and hybrids could be exploited for cultivation.
