    of red gram, and thus offering hope of pulse revolution in the country. The hybrid technology, based on cytoplasmic nuclear male-sterility (CMS) system, has given an opportunity of achieving the long-cherished goal of breaking yield barrier in pigeonpea. In the past two years ICRISAT and ICAR have tested over 1000 experimental hybridshybridsSubject Category: Organism Groups

    and among these GTH 1 and ICPH 2671 were found the most outstanding. GTH-1 has yielded 32% more yield than best local variety, GT 101. ICPH 2671 is highly resistant to fusariumfusariumSubject Category: Organism Names

    during 2007, 2008 and 2009 have demonstrated 30% yield advantage over local check varieties. So far the progress in the mission of enhancing the productivity of pigeonpea has been encouraging and the reality of commercial hybrids is just around the corner. The new hybrid pigeonpea will serve as the platform for the tremendous growth of pulse production in India.
