    during 1999. At Chambas, genotypes namely VO 1184, VO 2019, Yampa local and Yampa Dehi were found superior among the 54 tested genotypes (collected from Taiwan) based on yield performance, earlinessearlinessSubject Category: Properties

    , Phusro local produced the highest grain yield of 1167 kg/ha, followed by Dhobighat local (1068 kg/ha) and Barabise local (1062 kg/ha). At Chhebetar, 6 treatments combination of black gram with Niger along with pure crops were evaluated to identify profitable combination of black gram with Niger. The highest return of Rs 22 028/ha was observed by planting 2 rows black gram at 40 cm apart alternated with one row of Niger at 30 cm apart from black gram, followed by planting Niger between 2 rows of black gram spaced at 40 cm. In a study on the effect of 9 treatments combination of Mo, limelimeSubject Category: Chemicals and Chemical Groups

    and P on grain yield of black gram, application of P significantly increased grain yield of black gram, whereas the effect of lime and Mo was not so distinct.
