Abstract:

Edamame (Glycine max (L.) Merrill) also called vegetable soybean is an import vegetable and well recognized for health and nutritional benefits in the world. Soybean cultivars with large seed size and high sucrose content are desirable in the production of vegetable soybean, which is the food bean harvested at R6 stage and just before turning to yellow colour. However, the farmers in the state cultivating regular soybean for the past two decades but there is no suitable or improved vegetable soybean cultivars in the state of Telangana, India. In this study, 7 breeding lines were evaluated in replicated field trials for vegetable soybean green pod yield, 100 green seed weight, agronomic traits, cooking quality by sensory attributes and nutritional composition in Agricultural Research statation, Adilabad, Telangana state in 2018. For days to harvest at R6 stage VEG2 taken less days (62days), followed by VEG4 (63 days) and VEG7 taken 104 days to harvest at R6 stage. The trait green pod yield at harvest per plant has recorded maximum in case of genotype VEG 4 (7846 kg/ha) followed by VEG7 (7551 kg/ha). In case of 100 green seed weight, the highest mean was observed in VEG 2(75.0g) followed by VEG 4 (74.3g). The genotype VEG 4 is nutritionally equal to regular soybean and superior to other vegetables consumed in the state. Further it was well accepted as a vegetable curry by the panelists in terms of sensory attributes. Further this vegetable soybean may go as supplementary vegetable curry or food source for rural areas of Telangana for nutrition intervention programmes.
