Abstract: A research trail was carried out to check the comparative yield and yield components of three blond psyllium (Plantago ovata Forsk.) genotypes namely Variety-1 Plantago amplexicaulis, Variety-2 Ispaghol and Variety-3 Plantago coronopus in Balochistan. The highest grain yield (1250) kg/ha was recorded from 120 plant density by the variety-1 (Plantago amplexicaulis), followed by 1160 grain yield kg/ha was produced from 89 plants density by variety-2 (Ispaghol) whereas the lowest (780) grain yield kg/ha was recorded from 62 plant density by variety-3 (Plantago coronopus). The different parameters studied during investigation like plant height, Plant density, Spike length, number of tillers, total dry matter and grain yield were undertaken. The results considered that the variety-1 Plantago amplexicaulis gave 7% to 37% more yield and income than other varieties.
