Abstract:

It is resulted that the growth characters of pea indicated significant effect of sowing dates as sowing dates, D1 (1st November) had recorded maximum plant height, number of leaves, number of branches, earliest 50% flowering and harvesting and SPAD value at all the growth stages, while minimum in D4 (16th December) date of sowing. Yield attributes traits revealed significant impact of date of sowing in garden pea. Highest number of pods per plant was recorded under D1 (1st November), D2, D3 and D4. Sowing dates exhibited significant effect on pod length and number of seed per pod. Minimum harvest index was observed under D4 (16th December). Results showed significant influence of sowing dates on seed germination percentage, weight of 100 seed (g) and seed vigour index in pea. Maximum weight of 100 seed (g) was noted in case of D1 (1st November which was significantly higher than D3>D4. While minimum weight of 100 seed (g) was recorded under D4. Maximum germination percentage was observed under D1 (1st November) which was followed by D2 >D3> D4 while minimum germination (%) was recorded with D4. Maximum seed vigour was recorded with D1 (1st November) which was significantly superior over other dates of sowing. Highest number of pods per plant, harvest index, seed yield per plant (g) and seed yield per hectare was found with variety V7. Highest seed yield per plant (g) and seed yield per hectare was recorded with variety V7. Maximum pod length and number of seed per pod was found with V3 which was significantly superior over all other varieties. Quality traits of pea significantly influenced sowing dates on seed germination percentage, weight of 100 seed (g) and seed vigour index which were maximum with variety V7 (Kashi Samarth), while lowest were observed in case of variety V6 (Arka Ajit).
