Abstract

Effect of intergenotypic competition in pigeonpea was highly significant for all the characters except for 100-seed weight for their competitive ability. Competition caused significant changes in the relative performance of cultivars with regard to days to flowering, plant height, pods per plant, grains per pod, 100-seed weight and grain yield per plant. Twelve mixtures out yielded for only mid parent value, whereas, seven mixtures out-yielded only better parent in mixture and six mixtures alit yielded only best parent in experiment (BPE) and standard variety, UPAS 120 for grain yield per plant. Among the mixtures, UPAS 120 + Pusa 982 was found as the best mixture combination for pods per plant, 100 seed weight and grain yield.
