Abstract

Seventy-seven phenotypically diverse genotypes, including two checks (Pusa Naveen and Pusa Santushti) of bottle gourd, were evaluated for various quantitative traits at the Experimental field of Urban Technological Park (Habbak), Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir during Kharif-2022. A single-factor experiment was laid out in an Augmented Randomized Block Design with three blocks. Seventy-seven genotypes were randomly distributed among the three blocks, with each block receiving thirty-one lines, including two checks (Pusa Naveen and Pusa Santushti), replicated thrice. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences among genotypes for all the traits. The maximum fruit yield per hectare (ha-1) was recorded in IC-371747-1 (1132.21 q), followed by IC-382258 (848.199 q) and IC-398541 (845.33 q). On the other hand, the lowest fruit yield per hectare (ha-1) was recorded in IC-522878 (211.83 q), followed by Pusa Naveen (220.30 q) and SKUA-BG-7 (241.78 q). The average fruit yield per hectare (ha-1) for all the genotypes was 430.78 q.

Keywords: Bottle gourd, fruit yield, genotypes, mean performance
