Abstract :

Yard long bean is the most important vegetable grown in Kerala. Protected cultivation is one of the best methods to maximize production and to overcome biotic and abiotic stress conditions. Since the varieties suitable for polyhouse are not popular a study was conducted to identify the best accessions suitable for protected condition. Thirty yard long bean accessions were evaluated for yield and quality characters under naturally ventilated polyhouse. Super Green recorded the highest pod length (85.07 cm) and pod weight (64.77 g) whereas highest pod girth was noticed in NS -634. Neyyattinkara Local recorded highest number of pods per plant. The highest yield per plant was recorded in Anad Local (1627.12g) followed by NS-634, Githika and Hari Rani. Keywords
