Abstract:
The present investigation was undertaken for two consecutive years during Rabi season of 2019-20 and 2020-21 in the Department of Plantation, Spices, Medicinal and Aromatic Crops, Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi, to identify high yielding fenugreek genotypes suitable for Northern dry zone of Karnataka. According to pooled data, all the 32 genotypes which were selected for the experiment varied significantly with respect to growth, yield and yield attributing characters. Among the 32 genotypes evaluated, the highest plant height was recorded in DFC 16 (84.59 cm). Maximum number of branches per plant was observed in Pusa Early Bunching (17.16). Ajmeer Methi 3 recorded maximum plant spread at E-W and N-S direction (27.38 & 27.20 cm). Minimum days to 50 % flowering (38.49) and days to maturity (96.24), maximum number of pods per plant (57.07), pod length (12.57 cm), number of seeds per pod (15.89), seed yield (9.08 g/plant, 0.97 kg/plot & 30.82 q/ha) were recorded in Pusa Early Bunching. The genotypes such as, Pusa Early Bunching, Ajmeer Methi 3, DFC 20, DFC 8 and DFC 27 were found promising for seed yield.
