Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to assess sixteen lentil cultivars in terms of phenology, yield attributing characters and yield in randomized block design at district seed farm, AB block, BCKV, West Bengal, during rabi seasons of 2015-16 and 2016-17. The results of two the years experiment revealed that phenological characteristics, yield attributing characters and yield varied significantly during both the years of experimentation. Phenological development (flower initiation, 50% flowering, 100% flowering and maturity) was fastest with cultivar ILL 8006. Other cultivars like ILL 10805, ILL 10971, ILL 10921 ILL 10803, ILL 10961 and ILL 10951 were also early maturing type. Maximum seed yield was noted with ILL 10803 (1729 kg ha-1) followed by ILL 10805 (1665 kg ha-1) and ILL 10951 (1623 kg ha-1) by attributing higher number of pods per plant and test weight, whereas, lowest was recorded with ILL 8006 (1114 kg ha-1). Cultivar ILL 10803, ILL 10805 and ILL 10951 has a promising potential in New Alluvial Zone of West Bengal not only due to their higher yield potential but also their early maturing habit.
