A study was conducted to characterize the eighty four brinjal germplasm lines collected from different parts of the country using IBPGR descriptors at Horticultural Research Station, Venkataramannagudem, India. The data was collected on different plant, leaf, flower and fruit characters. Variability was observed for all the twenty five characters studied in the eighty four genotypes. The descriptors are helpful in breeding for high yielding, multiple disease resistant cultivars and improving the fruit quality characteristics.

Coleus forskohlii belongs to family lamiaceae and has been used as a condiment in India for a long time. The tuberous roots are the economic part, rich in diterpene "forskolin" and are used in drug preparation for various diseases. The present investigation was carried out to assess the role of organic manures, bio-fertilizers and their interaction effect on growth and yield of Coleus forskohlii. The results revealed that the FYM 5t + vermicompost 0.5t/ha among organic manures and Azospirillum + Phosphobacter each @ 2kg/ha among bio-fertilizers significantly increased the growth and yield and was on par with inorganic fertilization. However, interaction effect of manures x bio-fertilizer also exhibited a significant influence on growth and yield with a combination of FYM 5t + vermicompost 0.5t/ha and Azospirillum+ Phosphobacter each @ 2kg/ha and was on a par with the treatment FYM 5t+ Neemcake 0.5t/ha and Azospirillum + Phosphobacter each @ 2kg/ha.

The term baby corn was commonly used by the food industry refers to the young flowering corn ear harvested 1-2 days after silk emergence depending on the development conditions of the plant and size of the ear shoot (cob). It is new economic product in the market. Baby corn may be used as fresh or canned. Baby corn is a highly perishable product because of the highest respiration rate among vegetables. Pre-harvest application of phytohormones have known to play a spectacular role in improving quality and shelf life of many fruits and vegetables. Extension of storage life of perishable fruits and vegetables can be achieved by refrigeration. A field cum lab experiment was undertaken at Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University, Hyderabad with the baby corn variety G 5406 at to study the effect of effect of Pre-Harvest application of growth regulators on low temperature storage life and quality of baby corn. All the growth regulators extended the shelf life for 6 days over the control. Pre harvest spray of GA3 40 ppm followed by cycocel 1000 ppm was proved to be promising in reducing the PLW, spoilage per cent, better retention of TSS, reducing sugars, titrable acidity, ascorbic acid and crude protein content.

Correlation coefficient analysis in 84 varieties of brinjal revealed that the association of number of flowers per cluster, number of fruits per cluster, average fruit length and number of fruits per plant with fruit yield and among themselves was positive and highly significant and these traits were identified as yield components. The genetic improvement of fruit yield thus can be obtained by direct selection of these yield components. Path coefficient analysis revealed that the characters viz., fruit set percentage, fruit weight, number of fruits per plant, relative style length, number of flowers per cluster and number of fruits per cluster had high direct and correlation values. Thus, the fruit yield per plant can be improved by making selection of these characters during yield improvement programme.
