Abstract

An experiment was conducted to assess the nutritive value and yield of Lablab bean genotypes during summer. The pods of four Lablab bean genotypes IPSA Seam-I, IPSA Seam-2, IPSA Seam-3 and IPSA Seam-4 were harvested at 10, 15 and 20 days after anthesis. Dry matter, total sugar and carotene contents increased and protein content decreased with the pod maturity. However, reducing sugar and ascorbic acid were maximum at 15 days after anthesis. IPSA Seam-1 and 3 were statistically identical in protein content and was the lowest in IPSA Seam-2. IPSA Seam-4 contained highetit amount of ascorbic acid (8.09 mg/100g) and carotene (595.55 mg/100g). Total and reducing sugar were maximum in IPSA Seam-3 and 1 respectively.
