Abstract:
Four hundred pigeonpea germplasm accessions were evaluated and characterized at Pulses Research Station, SDAU Sardarkrushinagar (Gujarat) under Consortium Research Platform on Agro-biodiversity and majority of accession showed good early vigor, semi spreading plant growth habit, indetermediate plant habit, yellow base flower colour, green stem colour, glabrous leaf pubescence sparse streaks pattern, medium maturity, large seed size, plain seed colour pattern, medium seed eye width, orange base seed colour, oval seed shape and very low biotic stress susceptibility. The quantitative characters also showed wide variation and the potential germplasm may be utilized for further breeding program.
