Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at S.V. Agricultural College, Tirupati, to study the effect of different sowing dates on the seed yield and quality of different varieties of guar. The experiment was laid out in a factorial randomized block design replicated thrice. Four dates of sowing viz., first and second fortnight of July and first and second fortnight of August. Genotypes are RGC 1003, HG 563, RGM 112 and GAUG 9703. The results were revealed that growth parameters, yield attributes, yield and quality parameters were highest with RGM 112 sown during first fortnight of July, which was at par with HG 563 sown at the same time.
