Determination of Genotypical Differences for Leaf Characteristics in Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp.) Genotypes

Erkut Peksen, Cengiz Artik and Burcu Palabiyik

Abstract:
Leaf characteristics of ten cowpea genotypes, including registered Cv. Akkız-86 and Karagöz-86, from diverse locations in Turkey and relationships among leaf characteristics such as length of leaf, petiole, petiolule and terminal leaflet, terminal leaflet width and leaf area were determined. Significant differences were found among genotypes in terms of leaf and petiole length while highly significant differences found for petiolule length. There were no significant differences among genotypes for width and length of terminal leaflet and leaf area. Terminal leaflet length positively and significantly correlated with petiole and petiolule length. Positive and highly significant correlations were found between the other leaf characteristics.
