Abstract:

In agriculture, green manure is created by leaving uprooted or sown crop parts to wither on a field so that they serve as a mulch and soil amendment. The plants used for green manure are often cover crops grown primarily for this purpose. In the present study ten Sunhemp (Crotalaria juncea L.) and Eleven Dhaincha (Sesbania aculeata L.) genotypes were studied for seed yield during kharif, 2018 under rainfed ecosystem. Observations recorded on Days to 50 % flowering , Days to maturity, Plant height (cm), Number of branches per plant, Number of pods shattered per plant, Number of dry pods, Number of green pods, Number of seeds/pod , Test weight (g) and Seed yield per plant (g). Significantly higher values recorded compared to the check for all the characters except Plant height in Sunhemp and Test weight in Dhaincha. Seed yield per plant exhibited a wide amount of variation varying from 13.30 to 27.77 g per plant in Sunhemp. The overall mean was 18.94 g. Highest seed yield recorded in NTPSH 04 (27.77 g) followed by NTPSH 03 (26.12 g). Whereas in Dhaincha, the lowest seed yield recorded in NTPD 04 (14.46 g) and highest in NTPD 08 (34.67 g). However the high biomass production in terms of root and shoot is criteria in green manures. Selection will be effective for entry with high biomass and high seed yield.
