Abstract

The present study investigated the yield potential of fifteen varieties of Garden pea from various sources across the country. As there is no specific high yielding genotype of Garden pea recommended for cultivation in Bangalore region, which is located on the Deccan plateau, it is a main challenge to identify a suitable high yielding genotype for southern region of Karnataka so as to recommend for similar situations. The varieties were evaluated for yield and quality attributes at Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, UAS, GKVK, Bengaluru, India between October- January 2019-20 and 2020-21. Most of the major yield and quality contributing characters were significantly differed in the experiment. Experiment was carried out by using Randomized complete Block Design out of the fifteen varieties tested, highest pod length (10.98 cm), pod weight (9.38 g), pod width (2.87 cm), number of pod per plant (19.35), yield of pods per plant (92.62 g), per plot (3.15 kg), per hectare (157.50 q ha-1 tonnes) were recorded in T10 (Arka Apoorva), and number of green peas per pod (9.87), were recorded in T9 (Arka Karthik). Whereas T3 (Kashi Nandini) produced the days to first flower (41.56), and days to fifty percent flowering (52.08) were observed in T7 (PSM-4). Garden Pea being one of the most suitable vegetable crops for Rabi cultivation, the identified varieties could be raised by the farming community of the region for enhanced yield and economic benefits.
