Spread of soybean cultivar (DSb-21) in Dharwad district of Karnataka, India

Vineeth HT, Chetan BM, Shashank L Reddy and Madhu DM
Soybean (Glycine max L.) is one of the oldest cultivated crops of the world. The start of commercial exploitation of soybean in India is nearly four decades old. In this period, the crop has shown unparallel growth in area and production. Soybean has established itself as a major rainy season crop in the rainfed ecosystems. Introduction of soybean has resulted in an enhancement in the cropping intensity and resultant increase in the profitability per unit land area. In India soybean will continue to remain a major rainfed oilseed crop. Soybean DSb-21 is an improved variety cultivated by farmers in Dharwad district. The study throws light on spread and camparision of the particular variety in the district. The study was conducted in Dharwad, Hubli and Kalaghatagi taluks of Dharwad district of Karnataka state during 2020- 21 with a sample of 150 soybean farmers. A distinctive pattern of spread was noticed. There was about 8 per cent of land cultivated with DSb-21 during 2017-18 in Dharwad district mainly due to farmers preference to DSb-21 variety for its resistance to rust disease but gradually reduced to 2 per cent during 2020-21. The seed sales report from different production centers reported that due to heavy rainfall at the time of harvesting, seed germination was failed during seed testing, so procurement became less and production and marketing of DSb-21 variety was also less hence, seed sales with respect to area coverage under the particular variety gradually decreasing from year to year.
