Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to evaluate 200 green gram germplasm accessions for drought tolerance using augmented design during summer 2015 by imposing drought stress condition. ANOVA revealed high significant differences among germplasm accessions for yield, yield component traits and also for drought tolerance traits. Mean squares attributable to ‘Genotypes vs check entries’ were significant for all the traits except seeds per pod and relative water content. All the quantitative traits studied in germplasm accessions exhibited skewness values between -0.5 and 0.5 except for the traits leaf water potential (0.69) and seed yield per plant (0.66) indicating normal distribution for these traits in the population. Similarly all the quantitative traits exhibited lesser than zero values for kurtosis except for the test weight (1.02) and threshing percentage (0.24) indicating that the tails of the distribution of these traits are platykurtic.
