Identification of high yielding genotypes in greengram (Vigna radiata L.)

Aruna K, Gangaprasad S, Dushyanthakumar BM, Mohan Kumar HD

Greengram is a vital pulse crop throughout Asia, Australia, West Indies, South and North America, tropical and subtropical Africa. Owing to its high protein content greengram is an important part of diet. Low productivity is the major constraint in increasing area under greengram crop. Genetic variability is the pre-requisite for developing high yielding cultivar. Assessment of genetic variability is a preliminary step. With this background investigation was conducted to identify high yielding genotype. 81 genotypes were screened for yield and its attributing traits and assessed for genetic variability. Analysis of variance revealed significant mean squares attributable to genotypes for all the characters studied except primary branches plant-1, number of clusters plant-1 and 100 seed weight. Based on performance 13 genotypes were selected as high yielding.
