Thirty genotypes of field pea were evaluated during rabi (2007-08) to study the nutrient
composition. The range of proximate principals of these test genotypes were as follows: ash,
1.70 to 2.70 per cent; fiber, 1.23 to 1.84 per cent; protein, 18.20 to 24.67 per cent; oil, 1.28 to
2.17 per cent; carbohydrates, 57.95 to 63.53 per cent. Analysis of variance revealed that the
mean sum of square due to genotypes were significant for all the character. Low levels of coefficient
of variability were observed for all the characters, which suggested that genotypes did not differ
much for these characters.
