Effect of root size and umbel order on yield and quality of carrot (Daucus carota var. sativus) seeds



Effect of root size and umbel order on yield and quality of carrot (Daucus carota var. sativus) seeds



Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 63(9): 574-577



Trials were conducted during the winter seasons of 1989-90 and 1990-91 to determine the best steckling size for production of high quality seed of carrot Pusa Yamdagni. Seed yield from secondary umbels and seed yield/ha were highest with the largest (125-g) stecklings (78.40 g/plant and 3796.7 kg/ha, respectively). Germination rate was highest for seeds from 78-g stecklings.
