VARIETAL EFFECT ON THE YIELD AND YIELD COMPONENTS OF LENTIL (Lens culinaris L.)
The experiment was carried out to study the effect of variety on the yield and yield components of lentil at the Bangabandhu Academy for poverty Alleviation and Rural Development (BAPARD), Agricultural farm field, Kotalipara, Gopalgonj during November 2018 to March, 2019. Three lentil varieties, viz., BARI Masur-6, BARI Masur-7 and BARI Masur-9 were used in this experiment. Varieties showed significant influence on the all parameters except plant height and number of seed per pod. The highest seed yield (2224.81 kg/ha.) was found in BARI Masur-6 and the lowest seed yield (1356.94 kg/ha.) was observed in BARI Masur-9. It was evident from the present study among the varieties BARI Masur-6 was superior than BARI Masur-7 and BARI Masur-9 for produced the highest seed yield.
