Abstract:
A field experiment entitled “Effect of sowing dates and varieties on growth and yield of summer moong (Vigna radiata L.)" was conducted at the Research Farm of Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo during Zaid kharif season 2016-17 and 2017-18. The experiment was laid out in split plot design comprising three sowing dates (April 1, April 15 and April 30) in main plot and three varieties (SML 668, SML 832 and MH 421) in sub-plot. The treatment was replicated four times. Sowing crop on April 1 recorded significantly higher plant height, number of primary branches/plant, days taken to 50% flowering, number of pods/plant, pod length, number of grains/pod, test weight, seed yield and stover yield. Summer moong variety MH 421 gave significantly higher plant height, days taken to 50% flowering, number of primary and secondary branches/plant, number of pods/plant, pod length, test weight, seed yield and stover yield. The variety MH 421 sown at April 1 recorded similar seed yield as given by variety SML 668 sown at April 1. Summer moong crop can be grown successfully on April 1 using variety MH 421 and SML 668.
