Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to screen the suitable cultivars of betelvine for Terai zone of West Bengal. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with twelve betelvine cultivars with three replications. Different cultivars exhibited significant variations with respect to their growth, yield and yield attributing characters. The sanchi cultivars recorded significantly higher monthly linear growth having larger inter-nodal length with relatively larger size leaves. The cultivar Utkal sudam produced moderately higher leaf yield (66.03 lakh ha-1) with significantly larger size leaves (173.33 cm2) having shortest inter-nodal length (3.98 cm) among all the bangla cultivars which led to give the highest benefit cost ratio (3.70). On economic point of view, the cv. Utkal sudam, Kotki can be considered as the suitable variety for cultivation in Terai zone of West Bengal..
