Scientists determine major yield factors in lentil

FAISALABAD-The scientists working in Pulses Research Institute, Ayub Agriculture Research Institute (AARI) have determined major yield factors in lentil.

A study conducted at Pulses Research Institute has revealed that plant height, productive branches and seed per plant are major yield components in lentil. The results of the study can be used as a criterion for selection of genotype/pure lines to develop high yielding lentil varieties.

In this experiment, 64 promising lines of lentil including approved varieties of Masoor-85, and Masoor-93 were studied. At maturity, data on grain yield and yield components were recorded. Seed yield was positively correlated with plant height, number of productive (Secondary) branches, number of pods and seeds per plant while number of seeds per pod and 1000-seed weight had no effect n seed yield.
