Agronomical study of pigeon pea - University of the …

In the intercrop treatments, both pigeonpea and maize were planted on the same ridge.

Further, to understand the synteny of nad7 gene of pigeonpea, ..

In Southern Guinea Savanna agro-ecological zone of Nigeria, where poverty level is high and income generation opportunities are few, pigeonpea is often grown as field crop in both sole and intercropping systems with maize and sor ghum (Egbe, 2005; Egbe and Kalu, 2006).

Pigeonpea occupied the crest of the ridge, while maize was planted on the side.

The effects of compaction on the growth of pigeonpea …

However, some genotypes (ICPL 85010, ICPL 161 and ICPL 7120) had higher significant yield under intercropping than in sole cropping in the pigeonpea/maize systems.

Both crops were planted on the same day, on 23rd and 24th June 2007 and 2008, respectively.

Using genotypic data of mapping population anddata on FW and SMD, single marker analysis (SMA) was conducted, which leadsto the identification of only marker showing significant association with SMD.

However, its growth pattern and nodulation was similar to the normal cultivar, BDN 1.


Studies Of Pigeonpea Insect Pests And Their Management In Kenya, ..

Pigeon pea (LRG-41) seed was coated with four biological organisms like Trichoderma viride, Pseudomonas fluorescence, Rhizobium and PSB by using two adjuvants like bio friendly polymer and sugar syrup and the treated seed was kept for six months storage.

Studies on Pigeonpea Leaespot: Etiology and the …

Trichoderma viride and Rhizobium showed lower colony counts with biofriendly polymer (19.4 x 105 cfu g-1 and 16.3 x 105 cfu g-1, respectively) and Pseudomonas and PSB showed higher colony counts (12.6 x 105 cfu g-1 and 13.8 x 105 cfu g-1, respectively) when compared to their counts in the bio formulations.

Heat treatment of the pigeonpea seed decreased the arginine content

Net benefits of pigeonpea intercropped with sorghum varied from N38, 549.00/ha to N110, 399.00/ha, with a mean of N57, 965.00/ha while the sole crop values were N36, 168.00/ha – N115, 5354.00 and averaged N58, 489.00.

Anatomy of the Rachis of the Inflorescence of Pigeonpea ..

Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) is an important pulse crop for the tropical and subtropical regions of South Asia (mainly on the Indian-subcontinent), Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America, where it is serving as significant protein source to the human diet. Pigeonpea has self-compatible cleistogamous flowers, but it is often cross-pollinated by bees to an extent of 10–15 per cent. It plays an important role in food and nutritional security of human being, as it is a rich source of seed proteins (20–25 per cent), minerals and vitamins (). Pigeonpea is relatively drought tolerant and thrives well in both deep and shallow soils. The world acreage of pigeonpea is 4.90 mha with an annual production of about 4.22 million metric tonne worth about 1.5 billion US dollars: India is the largest producer and consumer of pigeonpea with an annual production of 2.46 mt followed by Myanmar 0.54 mt and Malawi 0.16 mt (FAOSTAT 2010; ).
