ABSTRACT

The experiment was conducted at Z.A. Bhutto Agricultural College, Dokri Larkana, Sindh, Pakistan in experimental design of RCBD, replicated four times in net plot size of 3m x 5m, where 74078-1, ICPL-4, Local check, ICPL-2, ICPL-6, ICPL-84, T-21, ICPL-150 pigeonpea varieties/lines were planted for growth and yield potentials. Among the tested cultivars ICPL-6 was observed as dwarf and appeared to be superior one by recording maximum branches, having early maturity, and attempted maximum number of pods and seed index. ICPL-6 also proved itself as high yielding pigeonpea cultivar by recording 2166.70kg grain yield-ha. Thus, it is recommended the ICPL-6 pigeonpea cultivar should be grown for early maturity and high potential yield.
