High-yielding brinjal plant

Krishna Murthy Challa (57) of Ashok Nagar, Nellore, Andhra Pradesh has a 3.15 m (10.33 ft) tall brinjal plant in his courtyard. The 11-months-old plant had yielded 110 fruits weighing 40 kg in total, the highest for a single plant, as on Feb 5, 2015. The weight of each fruit varied from 250-450 g. The bumper harvest was a result of a combination of factors like sufficient nutrients through natural fertilisers, regular watering and proper sunlight.
