Pigeon Pea Ratooning - An Aid to Breeders uri icon

abstract

  • It was found that ratooning pigeon pea plants facilitated cross-pollination between early and early X medium flowering cultivars. Less flower drop was observed on ratooned plants than on non-ratooned, especially with early maturing types. The effect of ratooning on seed and forage yield is being investigated
