Pulses are the second important group of crops after cereals, providing high dietary protein (20 to 25%), along with rich supplement of calcium and iron. They play an important role to enhance soil fertility through biological nitrogen fixation and also pass on the benefits to associated non legume and subsequent crops. In Handanakere area farmers cultivate local varieties which are low yielding. A field experiment was conducted in the farmers’ fields to know the performance of C-152 cowpea variety with local cowpea variety. The results indicated that C-152 has performed better compared to local varieties in growth and yield parameters. Higher income is generated by the cultivation of C-152 cowpea variety.

Keywords: C-152, Local variety, Growth, Yield parameters, higher Income
