Abstract:
The present investigation on “Evaluation of cowpea genotypes for growth, yield and yield attributing characters” was carried out during the summer season in the year 2018. The study was undertaken on 30 genotypes of cowpea using a randomized block design with three replications. The genotypes found to be varied for growth, yield and yield attributing parameters. Among these 30 genotypes the highest plant height was recorded in Vu-5 (128.18 cm) whereas the lowest plant height was observed in the genotype Pusa Sukomal (46.13 cm). The genotype AKCP-SR-3 was found to be early that started flowering early (43.07 days) whereas AKCP-6 was a late genotype which started flowering late (62.33 days). Similarly, the lowest days for fifty per cent flowering were recorded in the genotype AKCP-SR-3 (46.00 days) while the genotype AKCP-6 recorded the highest days to 50% flowering (71.67 days). AKCP-8-2 (18.05 g) recorded the highest 100 seed weight. The highest pod length was recorded by AKCP-8-2-1-1 (29.39 cm) whereas the lowest pod length was observed in Konkan Sadabahar (12.69 cm). The genotype AKCP-8-2-1-1 recorded the highest number of pods per cluster (3.27), the highest number of pods per plant (33.29), the highest yield per plant (284.47g) and the highest yield per hectare (140.48q).
