Abstract:

Thirty five genotypes of dolichos bean (Dolichos lablab L. var. typicus Prain) germplasm lines were evaluated for nutritive value of protein and fiber content in pods at Vegetable Research Station, Agriculture Research Institute, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad during August, 2016 to March, 2017. Genetic improvement in dolichos bean crop is a continuous demand for protein content of pods for different agro-climatic regions. From this study analysis of variance revealed that there is significant differences between genotypes indicating presence of sufficient amount of variability in two qualitative characters studied. Protein content (18.241) and fiber content (48.272) in pod showed maximum variability indicating the scope for selection of initial breeding material for further improvement. Among 35 genotypes studied, performance of PSRJ-13039 (25.09%) showing maximum protein content in pods (25.09%), while the lowest protein content in pods was recorded in IC-546388 (15.41 %). Lowest fiber content was recorded in IC-427424 (10.52%). Considering protein content and fiber content in pods the selected germplasm may be used as parental source for the development of superior dolichos bean varieties for commercial cultivation and may be released as a variety.
