Yield potential of CGMS based pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millspaugh) hybrids uri icon

abstract

  • Hybrid pigeonpea technology, based on cytoplasmic nuclear male-sterility was developed at International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT); 20 CMS-based hybrids along with two standard checks, Asha and Maruti were sown for study of yield potential. Among the hybrids, Seed yield (kg ha-1) was maximum in ICPA 2047 × ICPL 20126 (2635.36 kg ha-1). Out of 22 genotypes, seven hybrids were showed significantly high Seed yield (kg ha-1) over best check Asha (1636.30 kg ha-1) and general mean (2095.91 kg ha-1) both. The range of seed yield (kg ha-1) varies from 1381.99 kg ha-1 (Maruti) to 2635.36 kg ha-1 (ICPA 2047 × ICPL 20126)
