Effect of season on seed production feasibility in soybean
A field experiment consisting of five soybean genotypes (JS-335, MAUS-81, MAUS-71, MAUS-47 and MAUS-61) with four replication was conducted in three season viz. kharif, rabi
at Seed Technology Research Unit, VNMKV, Parbhani to find out the seed production feasibility in different season. The result revealed that the seed yield in soybean varieties was significantly higher in kharif
season followed by summer as compared to rabi
season. The kharif
was found to be best season for seed production. However, if soybean crop failed its seed viability due to late rains and field weathering in kharif
season at the time of maturity. Seed production may be taken in summer season looking to comparable yield. The variety MAUS-71 followed by MAUS-81, JS-335were recorded significantly highest seed yield over MAUS-47 in all the season. The variety MAUS-71 and MAUS-81 was found to be most ideal and stable over the year-round cultivation and best suited for seed production in all season.
