        I have done research in identification of the best Genotype of Plumbago Zeylanica on the basis of Yield and Plumbagin Content. 45 Accessions were collected from different parts of India and after 2 years of growth, The roots were harvested and estimated for Plumbagin. Also the distinct morphological characters were identified. Thus the best genotype was selected from the Plumbago Zeylanica Germplasm
