Abstract

Ten genotypes from ICRISAT were sown during 2001 in flat bed (FB), and broad-bed and furrow (BBF) plots. Samples were taken at the onset of intermittent drought (52 days after sowing (DAS)), end of drought (72 DAS) and at final harvest. Total above-ground dry matter, pod mass, crop growth rate and partitioning coefficient were recorded. The results showed that the recovery in growth rates following the release of drought was higher in most of the genotypes when grown on the BBF system as compared to FB system. About half of the genotypes studied maintained higher partitioning when grown on BBF than when grown on FB. The results suggest that the BBF system is promising for short-duration genotypes in northwestern Rajasthan.
