Abstract

An experiment was conducted in the Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology And Sciences, Prayagraj, during the 2023-2024 period. The study employed Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 10 hybrids, each replicated thrice. The hybrids tested were Godji x Nomsod, Godji x Ara Champ, Godji x Emerald Tank, Bangkla, Dynamo, Tropido, Dino King, Peth Dino, Susthaskorn, and Peth Phunlan. Among these hybrids the hybrid Godji x Ara Champ exhibited significantly better performance in several parameters, including germination percentage, days to 50% germination, seedling vigor index, seedling height, germination speed index, survival percentage, number of leaves per seedling, leaf area, caudex diameter.This hybrid's performance was found to be at par with the hybrid Dino King in terms of plant height, leaf area, caudex diameter, survival percentage. Consequently, hybrids Godji x Ara Champ and Dino King demonstrated superior performance in both germination and seedling growth under the agro-climatic conditions of Prayagraj.
