Abstract:

Present research was conducted to assess the performance of four cowpea genotypes (Fodder cowpea-1, konkan sadabahar, ACP-109, PCP-9702-1) under moisture stress conditions, at research farm department of Agricultural Botany COA, Dapoli, DBSKKV, Dapoli (M.S.). This research was carried Out to investigate the component traits responsible for developmental plasticity and mechanism of sustaining yield levels in water deficit conditions with support of growth analysis biochemical physiological parameters yield and yield contributing characters study studies on yield contributing characters viz., day to 50% flowering day to maturity, number of pods per plant, length of pod number of grains per pod,100 grain weight, grain yield per plant and grain yield per hectare found to be influenced significantly by different water stress treatment in cow pea genotypes. Changes in above mentioned parameters showed that fodder cow pea-1 and kokan sadabahar both varieties are much tolerant to water stress compared to ACP-109 and PCP-9702-1.
