Abstract

Twenty three cultivars of horse gram were evaluated for different productivity and quality traits. Among the 13 productive traits, it was found that, HG 11 and AK 38 recorded superior performance for 9 and 7 important and desirable productivity and quality traits, respectively. Keeping in view with the important productive traits viz., leaf length, plant height, primary branches plant-1, secondary branches plant-1, seeds pod-1, pod hulm plant-1, seed yield plant-1 and 100 seed weight possessed by the genotypes, it can be utilized in future breeding programmes. Since the number of varieties developed in horse gram is meager and the available variability among the genotypes for various characters being optimum, the breeder can use the potential genotypes which are having certain productive and desirable traits which in turn will act as a fuel for creation of variability and allows the selection of genotypes for different agro-climatic situations.
