Abstract:

A study was conducted during kharif and summer seasons of 2013-14 and 2014-15 with twenty genotypes of green gram to study the growth parameters and seed yield of green gram genotypes with special reference to growing season. The mean monthly soil moisture content during crop growing season was 23.46 per cent for kharif season and 12.95 per cent for summer season. The soil was acidic with medium value of organic carbon, low in available N, P and K contents. Significant variations were observed for specific leaf weight, crop growth rate, relative growth rate, net assimilation rate and seed yield among the genotypes and between the seasons. The genotype Pusa Baisakhi was found to be the highest seed yielder during kharif season which was followed by Pant Moong 4, Pratap, SGC 25 and SGC 20. The genotype Pusa Baisakhi showed the highest value for specific leaf weight and total dry matter content. The genotype also showed higher value for crop growth rate, net assimilation rate and relative growth rate which might have contributed towards higher seed yield for this genotype during kharif season. On the other hand, during summer season the genotype SGC 25 was found to be the highest seed yielder followed by SGC 20, Pusa Baisakhi, Pant Moong 4 and Pratap. The genotype SGC 25 showed the higher value for total dry matter content per plant, specific leaf weight, crop growth rate, relative growth rate and net assimilation rate which might have contributed towards higher seed yield for this genotype during summer season. On an average during summer season seed yield was 27.21% lower compared to that of kharif season which might be due to low soil moisture during summer season. Therefore, the genotype SGC 25 can be adjusted as better genotype for growing in summer season.
