Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during winter season of 2013-14 to study the performance of different genotypes pigeon pea with planting geometry. The genotype and planting geometry significantly influenced the growth parameter, seed yield, stalk yield, harvest index, yield attributes (viz. seed pod-1, pod plant-1, seed plant-1 and 100 seed weight). Among the six genotypes (Asha, Rajeevlochan, RPS- 2007-106, Laxmi, RPS-2008-4 and RPS-2007-10) tested, genotype Asha (1281 kg ha-1) recorded significantly highest seed yield over the other genotype. In the two planting geometry significantly maximum seed yield of 1235 kg ha-1 was realized with spacing of 45 cm x 10 cm and was higher yield than the yield recorded with spacing of 60 cm x 10 cm (1085 kg ha-1). The Genotype Asha gave maximum seed pod-1 (4.23), pod plant-1 (132.00), seed plant-1(557.27) and 100 seed weight (11.22 g) over rest of the genotypes. Pigeon pea sown with wider geometry of 60 cm x 10 cm gave maximum seed pod-1 (4.05), pod plant-1 (124.50), seed plant-1 (496.67) and 100 seed weight (11.10) compared to narrow spacing of 45 cm x 10 cm. In conclusion among the genotype Asha was the best variety in terms of growth and yield in winter season planting of pigeon pea.
