Abstract:

Among various grain legumes grown, pigeon pea [Cajanus cajan (L.) millsp.] is the second most important crop of India. It is called by an array of names such as Arhar, Cango Pea, Angole, Rahar, Red Gram and Tur. The experiment under present investigation was during Kharif 2017 at Agriculture Farm, Nana Ji Deshmukh New Agriculture Campus, Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya, Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P.). The characters studied in the present study included plant stand, days to 50% flowering, primary branches per plant, number of pods per plant, plant height, 100-seed weight(g), seed yield per plant, seed yield (kg/ha), no. of seeds /pod and days to 80% maturity. Analysis of variance for the design of the experiment indicated highly significant differences for nine characters except for plant stand which was found to be non- significant. High PCV was obtained for pods per plant, primary branching, seeds per pod, seed yield per plant (g) and Yield kg/ ha. while high GCV was observed for the character pods per plant only. High heritability was observed for days to 50% flowering and pods per plant. High Genetic advance% of mean was observed only for pods per plant. High GCV, PCV, coupled with heritability and genetic advance% of mean was found only for character pod per plant.
