Yield Potential of Blackbean (Vigna mungo (L.) Hepper) Germplasm
Amanullah and Mir Hatam

An experiment consisting of 11 blackbean (Vigna mungo (L.) Hepper) germplasm was carried at the Research Farm of NWFP Agricultural University Peshawar on June 9, 1999, to know the yield potential of these germplasm in relation to other important agronomic characters. Germplasm BB14 ranked first by producing maximum grain yield of 844 kg ha -1, followed by germplasm BB7 (755 kg ha-1). Average values of grain yield decreased in descending order from 799 kg ha -1 in group I to 375 kg ha -1 in group II and then further decreased to 243 kg ha -1 in group III. Similarly, the average values of days to maturity, plant height, branches and pods per plant, 100 seeds weight, dry matter yield and harvest index decreased in descending order, and showed positive association with grain yield.
