Abstract:

Twenty lentil genotypes were taken to study the dry matter production, partitioning, and yield, under three different dates of sowing (15 November, 6 December, and 27 December), data were recorded at various growth stages. A decrease in root dry matter in late sowings at pre-flowering and post-flowering was observed. Crop grown on the second sowing (late sown, 6 December) registered higher means for total dry weight and yield at 50 and 65 days after sowing. The percent dry matter partitioning into leaf and stem has a significant influence on seed yield of lentil in all the genotypes and sowing dates. Data reveals that reduced soil moisture and high air temperature, during reproductive stage led to drastic reduction in the seed yield at third sowing (late sown, 27 December). The promising genotypes under third sowing (late sown, 27 December) are PRECOZ and L-13-123 as they maintained to yield higher as compared to other genotypes.
