Abstract :

Field experiments were conducted during 2012-13 rabi and summer seasons at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore to assess the seasonal and geo-metrical variations in pre-release blackgram genotypes/variety under gardenland and rice fallow condition. Blackgram variety Co BG 6 at a planting geometry of 30 x 10 cm proved to be a better agronomic option for getting higher grain yield of (1046 kg ha -1 in rabi and 746 kg ha -1 in summer), followed by Co BG 759 genotype at 20 x 20 cm crop geometry recording (940 kg ha -1 in rabi and 637 kg ha -1 in summer), higher yield at Coimbatore, located in western zone of Tamil Nadu.
