Field investigation was conducted at the Bahadari farm, College of Horticulture, Mandsaur during rabi 2009-10. Eighteen treatment combinations comprising of six varieties viz.,V1-Arkel, V2-Pusa Pragati, V3-Matar Ageta-6, V4-Kashi Nandini, V5- Kashi Shakti V6-Azad Pea-3 and three phosphorus levels P1-60kg P2O5/ha, P2-90 kg P2O5/ha and P3-120kg P2O5/ha were laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications.Observations were recorded on growth, yield parameters, seed yield and quality. It was concluded that the variety Matar Ageta-6 was superior as indicated through seed yield and quality. Among the phosphorus levels there was increase in growth, yield parameters, yield and seed quality up to P3 (120 kg P2O5/ha) level but significant improvement was only up to P2 (90 kg P2O5/ha). Economic analysis of different treatments revealed that cost of cultivation was increased with increasing dose of phosphorus application irrespective of variety. Gross return, net profit and cost : benefit ratio were realised highest in variety Matar Ageta-6 with P3 (120 kg P2O5/ha) application. It was followed by the same variety under P2 (90 kg P2O5/ha) application.However, there was very marginal increase with P3 (120 kg P2O5/ha) over P2 (90 kg P2O5/ha).
