The purpose of this research was to investigate in terms of qualitative, yield attributes and nutritional characters at North Eastern part of Rajasthan during the 2018 and 2019 cropping season respectively for the effective selection of genotypes. Fifteen genotypes of carrot were studied in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications in two different seasons i.e., environment 1 (E 1) and environment 2 (E 2). Based on the performance and variance the genotypes, Selection M E 01 was

The highly significance difference among all the characters viz. inner core diameter (cm), flesh thickness (cm), plant height (cm) at 30, 60 and 90 DAS, harvest index (%), gross root weight / 5 plants (kg), net root weight / 5 plants (kg), dry matter (%), TSS ( o brix%), β carotene content (mg / 100 g fresh wt.) and vitamin A (I U) except days to seed germination, number of leaves / plants and moisture% in roots for both the season (E 1 and E 2), were observed sufficient amount of genetic variability. Analysis of variance showed significant difference for most of the characters. It was observed that mean value of season 2 (E 2) were greater than season 1 (E 1) for most of the characters.
