Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to find out morphological and reproductive variability in response to different sowing dates and fertilizer treatments with two varieties of French bean under the agroclimatic conditions of Mymensingh, Bangladesh. The highest fertilizer treatment (90:50:120) produced the highest pod and seed yield per hectare. Fertilizer treatments had significantly different effects on pod length, number of seeds per pod, fresh pod weight per plant, dry seed weight per plant, pod yield and seed yield. The varieties differed significantly in respect to seed yield only. Yellow variety gave the highest seed yield per hectare. The January sowing gave the highest pod and seed yield. Seed sown in February failed to produce any fruit. The interaction of sowing dates and varieties had no significant effects on the above characters. The best morphological and reproductive characters performance were observed in January sowing and highest fertilizer treatments combination.
