IMPACT OF MOISTURE STRESS ON YIELD AND YIELD ATTRIBUTES IN MUNGBEANG. Govardhan, K.H.P. Reddy, D.M. Reddy, P. Sudhakar, P. Latha and B.V. B. Reddy
The present investigation was carried out using 58 mungbean germplasm lines for assessing genetic variability under two environments viz., irrigated and moisture stress. Mean performance of the genotypes for most of the characters was higher in irrigated than moisture stress condition. Considerably high variability was observed for most of the yield attributes in E1 (irrigated) as well as E2 (moisture stress) conditions. A perusal of mean values revealed that the genotype MGG 390 in irrigated condition and CN 9058 in moisture stress condition were found to be best for seed yield per plant suggesting that these genotypes could be used as donors for yield improvement in their respective conditions. In both irrigated and moisture stress conditions, the check varieties viz., MGG 347, MGG 348, MGG 351 and LGG 460 exhibited consistent per se performance for most of the yield attributes and yield.
