Abstract

Blackgram is one of the most important pulse crops extensively grown in Bangladesh with multiple uses. An experiment was conducted to examine the suitability and productivity of a gamma irradiated pulse variety Binamash-2 in Kharif-II season for two consecutive years 2021 and 2022 over four locations, Mymensingh, Chapainawabganj, Gopalganj and Magura districts. The experiment was consisted of two varieties viz. Binamash-2 and BARI Mash-3. Binamash-2 produced higher seed yield than BARI mash3 at all four locations. Binamash-2 produced bolder seeds with early maturity than BARI mash3. The seed coat color and size of Binamash-2 was more attractive than BARI mash3 and farmers of four studied areas are very much interested to cultivate Binamash-2 in the upcoming years.
