Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of nine pea varieties (PB-89, AP-3, AP-1, VL-7, Arkel, Bonneville, Arka Kartik, JM-2 and Palam Priya) on the farmer’s fields at three altitudinal ranges viz. 600 m amsl, 1375 m amsl and 1800 m amsl in Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. Standard package and practices were followed for raising the crop as per the recommendations of the University. The results of the experiment revealed that all the varieties exhibited considerable variation for most of the parameters studied on different experimental locations. The effect of varieties, zones and interaction between them was found to be significant for most of the traits.PB-89 performed best at the lowest altitudinal range by having maximum green pods per plant (17.98), highest green pod weight (5.97g), green pod length (10.96 cm), maximum number of branches per plant (18.35) and highest yield (186.11q/ha) in zone I. Variety VL-7 proved best for zone II with maximum number of branches per plant (15.98), number of pods per plant (17.94)and highest yield (183.89 q/ha) whereas, Palam Priya performed best in the zone III with maximum green pod length (9.40 cm), number of pods per plant (17.97) and pod yield (185.78q/ha).
