The present investigation was carried out with 51 genotypes along with one check variety of cluster bean during summer, 2017 using Randomized Block Design with three replications. Significant variations were recorded among genotypes for growth, yield and quality parameters. Among the fifty one genotypes, three genotypes IC-200680 (121.50cm) and IC-140777 (114.50cm) were taller and two genotypes IC-140791 (36.90cm) and IC-140792 (40.90cm) were shorter. Two genotypes IC-200680 (11.50) and IC-140774 (11.00) recorded the higher number of branches. As revealed from the mean data, the genotypes IC-200696 (28.00) and IC-200711 (28.00) were found to be the earliest with respect to days to first flowering. The number of pods per plant, an important yield contributing trait, was the higher in the genotype IC-200680 (96.70) followed by IC-34344 (96.00). In respect of pod yield per plant, the genotypes IC-103295 (198.40g) and IC-34344 (177.60g) showed higher values. As far as pod characters are concerned, the genotype IC-140777 (11.50cm) recorded the highest pod length followed by IC-103295 (10.50cm), while two genotypes IC-140777 (10.80mm) and IC-140774 (10.60mm) exhibited higher pod girth and IC-39989 (2.05g) and IC-103295 (2.18g) recorded the higher pod weight. The number of seeds per pod was found to be the highest in the genotype IC-10323(9.00) and IC-34344 (9.00) followed by 140777 (8.50). The quality analysis exhibited a wide range for protein content, fiber content in pod and gum content in endosperm of the seed. The protein content was found to be the higher in the genotypes IC-28287 (24.50%) and IC-28795 (24.50%). The fibre content was found to be the higher in the genotypes IC-28795(9.03%) and IC-34344 (8.60%). The gum content was found to be the higher in the genotypes IC-9203 (33.10%) and IC-103295 (33.06%) in cluster bean. Hence, these germplasm can be considered for inclusion in further breeding programmes besides their release after extensive yield trials.

Keywords: Cluster bean, Mean performance, Yield, Yield parameters, Gum, Protein, Fibre content.
