Abstract:

The study was conducted at the Potato and Temperate Fruit Research Station, Mainpat, Chhattisgarh, aiming to study the “Yield attributes and yield potential of potato varieties (Solanum tuberosum L.) and soil health under peach-based agroforestry system in northern hills zone of Chhattisgarh”. The experiment was carried out in Factorial RBD design with three replications having ten treatment combinations with two production viz., Sole potato and Peach + potato system assigned in five crop varieties viz.,Kufri Sinduri, Kufri Lalit, Kufri Arun, Lady Rosseta, and Kufri Khyati, the experiment was set up. Plots were 5x5m, with row and plant distances at 60cm and 20cm respectively. A fertilizer application of 180:120:120 NPK kg ha-1 was used. Significant differences were observed in yield attributes, including number of tubers per plant, tuberization efficiency, fresh weight of tuber plant, marketable tuber yield, unmarketable tuber yield, and total tuber yield, influenced by both production systems and crop varieties. Peach-based agroforestry demonstrated better yield attributes compared to sole potato cultivation. The Peach + potato agroforestry system resulted in significantly higher total tuber yield (22.88 t ha-1) compared to the Sole potato system (18.04 t ha-1). The complementary interactions between peach trees and potatoes likely improved microclimatic conditions and resource utilization, enhancing potato yield in the agroforestry system.
