Abstract

Seventy-three accessions of green gram collected from different sources along with three controls were studied for 20 qualitative characters at National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources (NBPGR), Regional Station, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, India during 2014–2015. Based on the plant growth pattern, green gram accessions were classified into determinate (10) and indeterminate (66). Based on pod color, the accessions were classified into brown (12) and black (64) colored pods. On the basis of seed luster, green gram accessions were grouped into dull (43) and shiny (33). Based on seed shape, green gram accessions exhibited diversity for seed shape, i.e., oval (43) and drum (33). Among the distinct morphological traits, seed luster may be used as an indicator in broad classification of genotypes into different groups rather than of individual genotype.
