Author(s): Vanalalruati Sailo, Anita Kerketta and VM Prasad
Abstract: Evaluation of twenty genotypes of cowpea was done in a field experiment designed in Randomized Block Design with three replications during kharif season of the year 2020 at Vegetable Research Farm, SHUATS, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. The analysis of variance revealed significant differences between genotypes indicating presence of sufficient amount of variability in all the characters. The mean replicated data on twenty genotypes for fourteen quantitative traits revealed that the maximum Green Pod Yield/ha was observed in COPBVAR-4(12.328tonnes), the earliest genotype was found to be 2019/COPBVAR-6. Close relationship between GCV and PCV was found in all the traits. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percentage of the mean was recorded in number of days to germination, Plant height after 40 days, number of peduncles/plant, number of branches/plant, pod length, pod girth, pod weight and green pod yield/ha.
