Abstract:
The Botanical name of lentil is the (“Lens culinaris Medik.”). It is one of the most nutritious amongst cool or rabi season crop. Lentil seeds contain 25% protein, 0.7% fibre, 0.7% fat, 2.1% minerals and 59% carbohydrate. The soluble protein content was ranged from 14.20% (LL 1427) minimum to 19.64% (LH 1404) maximum and the grand mean was found 16.95%. The phenotypic (8.16) and genotypic (7.95). CV (coefficient of variation) for this character indicating that environment has played significant role to express this character. The oil content in lentil was ranged from 1.17% (L 4076 ch) & (PL247) to 3.67% (RVL 16-4) and the grand mean was 2.27%. The pheotypic (36.36) and genotypic (31.89) CV (coefficient of variation) was found high values for this character indicating that environment has played significant role to expressed this character. The moisture content was varied from 6.67% (NDL 17-29) minimum to 9.00% (VL 529) maximum and the grand mean was found 7.67%. The phenotypic (13.36%) and genotypic (6.36) CV (coefficient of variation) for this character indicating that environment has played significant role to expressed this character.
