Abstract

An experiment comprising sixteen genotypes of blackgram was laid out in randomized block design with tree replications. The gernotypes significantly differed for grain yield per plant. The highest grain yield was recorded by the genotype TAU-1 (19.91 q/ha). Number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, number of pods per clusters, number of grain per pod, number of grain per plant and test weight were appeared to be the most important yield contributing characters for enhancing higher grain yield. Most of characters showed either significant or non-significant and positive correlation with means grain yield except primary branches, number of leaves and leaf area index.
