Cite article:- Kalyani* Lakshmi D., Sunitha N. (2024). RESPONSE OF CLUSTER BEAN [Cyamopsis tetragonoloba (L.) Taub.] VARITIES TO DIFFERENT TIMES OF SOWING – A REVIEW. Agricultural Reviews. 32(3): 209 - 215. doi: .
Cluster bean, popularly known as guar is a drought tolerant annual crop grown mostly in north-western states viz., Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana, Punjab and different parts of Uttar Pradesh.  Among different agronomic practices, selection of suitable variety and optimum time of sowing are the important non-monetary inputs for obtaining higher yield potential.  A good variety often fails to express its potential even under good management conditions, unless it is sown at a right time.  Summarizing the review undertaken, it could be concluded that sowing of guar during first fortnight of July was found to be better than the other times of sowing. The variety Durgapur Safed significantly out-yielded the other varieties in respect of seed, protein and gum production.
