Languages of publication
The study was carried out to evaluate the performance of five different radish varieties (HRD RAD 001, HRD RAD 002, HRD RAD 003, HRD RAD 004 and HRD RAD 005) for growth and yield performance. The experiment was set up in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD), with four replications at 30 cm X 15 cm of spacing, with a plot size of 3.15 m2 at Agricultural Research Station (ARS), Pakhribas, Dhankuta, during 2014 and 2015. The average performance of both years revealed that the radish genotypes HRD RAD 002 (37.91 t/ha), followed by HRD RAD 004 (28.91t/ha) were found as promising - with better adoptability, higher root weight, root length and yield. Hence, HRD RAD 002 and HRD RAD 004 could successfully be grown in the conditions found in the Eastern mid-hills area.
