MUNGBEAN SEED YIELD: EFFECT OF DRY MATTER DISTRIBUTION, PARTITIONING AND LEAF AREA AT DIFFERENT CROP GROWTH STAGESPushp Sharma, Guriqbal Singh and T.S. Bains
Mungbean genotypes procured from Asian vegetable research development centre (AVRDC) were involved in field trails to elucidate the effect of dry matter partitioning in different plant parts at various crop growth stages on seed yield. At 60 days after sowing leaf area reached maxima which coincides with maximum dry matter accumulation in leaves, roots and nodules. During pod filling maximum dry matter accumulated in stem. Leaf area was the most important source that determined TDM.Higher seed yield was attributed to higher leaf area, total dry matter and hence forth harvest index.
