Abstract:
Pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan L. Millsp.) is one of the important tropical pulses grown across the world. A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2019-20 at the field experimentation center of Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology & Sciences, Prayagraj. The experiment was carried out in Randomized block design with 16 genotypes to evaluate the better performing genotype of pigeonpea for growth, yield and yield attributes in agro climatic conditions of Prayagraj. Significant differences in growth, yield and yield attributes were recorded among the genotypes. Results revealed that the genotypes NL-13 and NL-7 recorded higher yield than the check variety Chamatkar. Among the 16 genotypes, NL-13 gave best result with 291.13 pods plant-1 and 2.86 kg seed plot-1 followed by the genotype NL-7 with 275.03 pods plant-1 and 2.53 kg plot-1 respectively.
