Abstract:
A field investigation on “Cultivar and sowing date effect on productivity of redgram (Cajanus cajan L.)” was conducted during kharif, 2019 at college farm, Agricultural College, Mahanandi of Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University. The experimental site was sandy loam soil and it was neutral in reaction with a pH of 7.38, EC of 0.20 ds m-1. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with factorial concept (FRBD) having twelve treatments and three replications. The experiment comprised three redgram cultivars viz., C1: LRG-52; C2: PRG-176 and C3: ICPL-87119 and four sowing dates viz., D1: 2nd FN of June; D2: 1st FN of July; D3: 2nd FN of July and D4: 1st FN of August. Among the cultivars tried, C3 (ICPL-87119) recorded significantly highest range of pods plant-1(822), seed yield (1405 kg ha-1) and haulm yield (5352 kg ha-1) than other cultivars, which is on par with C1 (LRG-52) at harvest. C1 (LRG-52) recorded more number of grains pod-1 (4.2) and test weight (12.9 g) over other cultivars. The highest harvest index (15.51%) was found in C2 (PRG-176) than other cultivar, which is on par with C3 (ICPL-87119). Among the sowing dates, D2 (1st FN of July) produced significantly highest number of pods plant-1 (723), test weight (12.8 g), seed yield (1432 kg ha-1), haulm yield (5342 kg ha-1) and harvest index (15.66%) than other rest of sowing dates at harvest, which is on par with D1(2nd FN of June). The number of grains pod-1 (4.2) were significantly in D1 (2nd FN of June), which is however on par with D2 (1st FN of July) over other sowing dates.
