Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out with 112 diverse genotypes along with 5 checks of mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] during Kharif season. Data were recorded on various morphological and agronomic characters including hypocotyl pigmentation, days to 50 percent flowering, plant height, number of leaves, number of branches, number of clusters, number of pods per cluster, total number of pods per plant, pod length, pod diameter, pod wall thickness, seed length, seed diameter, 100-seed weight, seed density and seed yield. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences among all the genotypes for all the characters studied. Wide range of variation had been observed for all the characters except hypocotyl pigmentation. Eight genotype were at par with respect to seed yield per plot from the best performing check PM-6 (0.55 kg), these genotype were as PM 06-46 (0.71 kg), MH-318 (0.69 kg), VC 1997 A (0.68 kg), SML-668 (0.67 kg), COGG-912 (0.62 kg), Barimung-5 (0.61 kg), PM 03-4 (0.59 kg) and TM 96-2 (0.58 kg). The study also provides information about the performance of some of the promising genotypes in respect of morphological and agronomic characters and identifies some prominent genotypes. These genoypes may be further used for parental selection in breeding programmes for improvement of yield and various qualitative and quantitative characteristics in mungbean.
