Description Aims: To find out genetic variation of pigeon pea Germplasms population on Chhattisgarh, with H. armigera, M. vitrata Larvae Population.
Study Design: Augmented RBD Design in 4 block with 3 check varieties.
Place and Duration of Study: College of Agriculture Raipur, IGKVV, Chhattisgarh. During Kharif 2019-2020.
Methodology: The experimental materials were used 100 local landraces of Pigeonpea and three popular standard checks. The Morphological observations on various agro-morphological characters including qualitative and quantitative characters and Incidence of major insects of Pigeonpea were recorded.
Results: outcome of the study reviled that Incidence of major insect of Pigeonpea 10 genotypes of pigeonpea are resistant and 10 are susceptible occurred. Analysis of variance indicated that the mean sum of squares due to genotypes were highly significant for all the characters with p-value of 0.001 and some traits check varieties 0.001. Results of genetic variability analysis state that’s highest genetic advance as percent of the mean for traits are days to fifty percent flowering, plant height, seed protein content, and days to maturity.
Conclusion: The Pigeonpea accession used in the study revealed significant variability for most of the morphological traits. Amongst the genotypes studied, high coefficients of variation were observed for most of the characters studied indicating the existence of sufficient variability.
