DescriptionCarrot, (daucus carota), herbaceous, generally biennial plant of the apiaceae family that produces an edible taproot. Among common varieties root shapes range from globular to long, with lower ends blunt to pointed. Besides the orange-coloured roots, white, yellow, and purple-fleshed varieties are known.Carrot is widely adapted to cool climate but generally restricted to regions with low rainfall during summer and early autumn. A dry warm atmosphere is desirable for maturing plants that are tough and woody. A temperature range of 7.2 To 23.9°C is considered optimum for seed production. Good colour and growth of carrot roots has been observed in the temperature range of 15.6- 21.1°C seed production is suited to those regions which are away from coastal areas, where condition is drier for maturing seed.For temperate type cultivars, a chilling temperature of 4.8-10°C for 4-6 weeks is desirable as cold stimulus (vernalization) any time during the development of roots. Seed stock formation takes place only when these plants are subjected to a temperature of 12.2-21.1°C. Plants grown continuously at a temperature region range of 21.1-26.7°C fail to develop floral primordial.The soils of selected fields should be light, deep and fields should be well drained with ph range from 6.6-7.1.Deep, loam and loamy soils are preferred for good crop.For early crop, a sandy loam soil is preferred, but for higher yields, silt or silt loam soils is desirable. Long, smooth and slender roots desired for fresh market are successfully grown on deep well drained light soils. For More Plants visit
