Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2016 at the Main Agricultural Research Station, Raichur. The experiment was laid out in Lattice Design with three replications. In the present study, the nature and magnitude of genetic diversity, growth and yield characters were assessed among 64 pigeonpea genotypes. Among the 64 genotypes GRG-2009 registered significantly highest leaf area (15.80 dm2 plant-1), number of branches plant-1 (57.01), chlorophyll content (66.82 SPAD), pod weight (9.06 g), pod length (6.13 cm), seed yield (54.16 g plant-1 and 1687.21 kg ha-1). Whereas, ICP-14944 (71.72 days) and ICP-14944 (133.17 days) took less number of days to 50 per cent flowering and days to maturity compared to other genotypes. Among 64 genotypes GRG-2009 and ICP-11320 are best performers for plant growth and yield attributing characters.
