Evaluation of medium duration pigeonpea hybrid under rainfed situation

Published on

Field trials of 12 genotypes including nine hybrids and
three checks, Maruti, Asha and Birsa Arhar-1 were
conducted under rainfed conditions. Analysis of variance
for all the ten characters for each environment and on
pooled basis indicated highly significant variation over
the seasons, except pod size which was significant at 5%
level only. Highest pooled grain yield of 2259.5 kg/ha was
recorded in Hybrid ICPH 2740, which was at par with ICPH
3933 (2131.8) and ICPH 2671 (2101.5 kg/ha) as compared
to the best check, Birsa Arhar-1 (1689 kg/ha). ICPH 2740,
ICPH 3933 and ICPH 2671 showed resistant reaction to
wilt and sterility mosaic disease of pigeonpea. Hybrids
ICPH 2740 and ICPH 2671 were identified as stable in
respect of yield as well as infestation of disease and insect
