The study was carried out to characterize elite improved lines of Greengram genotypes developed at Regional Agricultural Research Station (RARS), Lam, Guntur using DUS descriptors. The 29 elite improved lines and one released variety (LGG 460) were evaluated and characterized for 24 DUS descriptors i.e., anthocyanin colouration during cotyledonary stage, plant, stem, leaf, flower, pod and seed characters. 14characters out of 24 characters of DUS descriptors differed significantly indicating a large and exploitable amount of genetic variability for the individual elite improved line profile development for identification and protection. The elite lines are similar for the important plant traits like semi erect and determinate growth habit but the development of erect types is the need of hour and indicates the incorporation of new germplasm for the improvement of this trait in the present material. The DUS descriptor data generated with unique profiles of the elite improved lines can be used for the registration with PPV & FRA and seed purity testing.
