Abstract:
The aim of study was to identify the yield and yield components in fifteen genotypes of seed guar. It was carryout during kharif, 2014 at the “Student Research Farm”, College of Horticulture, Dr. Y.S.R. Horticultural University, Mojerla, Mahabubnagar, Telangna state in a Completely Randomized Block Design with three replications. The results revealed that the analysis of variance indicated highly significant differences for all the yield characters among all cultivars studied. Significantly RGC 986 recorded the maximum number of seeds per pod, pod yield per plant, pod yield per hectare, seed yield per plant, seed yield per hectare. While, the cultivar RGC 1038 recorded the maximum seed to pod ratio. The highest 100-seed weight was recorded in HG 2-20. The cultivar HG 884 recorded the maximum harvest index. This complex set of association between various yield components clearly indicated that selection of early genotypes would be reliable to increase the pod length, pod weight, number of pods and ultimately pod yield per plant.
