Abstract:
The study was conducted in Rabi 2014-15 to evaluate the performance of different genotypes of fenugreek at University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. Among the 35 genotypes evaluated, the highest plant height was recorded in DFC 4 and DFC 14 at 30 and 60 days after sowing respectively. Pusa Early Bunching recorded maximum number of branches per plant at 30 and 60 days after sowing. Maximum number of leaves per plant were observed in DFC 5 and DFC 6 at 30 and 60 days after sowing respectively. DFC 6 (0.76 kg/sq.m) showed highest herbage yield. Pusa Early Bunching (0.74 kg/sq.m.), Ajmer Methi 1 (0.69 kg/sq.m) and DFC 5 (0.68 kg/sq.m.) also produced significantly higher herbage yield than the check Gujarat Methi 2 (0.60 kg/sq.m.).
