The present experiment was conducted at Seed Research Area, Department of Vegetable Science, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar (Haryana) in rainy season during 2017 and 2018 for two years. The objective of the investigation was to identify different varieties of cowpea for quality seed production in Haryana. There were total six varieties of cowpea as a treatments viz., P-263, Kashi Kanchan, Pusa Komal, Pusa Sukomal, Charodi-1 and HC-46 that were laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Among six varieties of cowpea, seed contributing attributes viz. days to early flowering (40.60 days), maximum number of pod/plant (24.08), number of seed/pod (14.03), seed yield/plant (15.98 g) and seed yield/ha (13.99 q) were recorded significantly higher in Kashi Kanchan variety which was statistically at par with P-263 and Pusa Sukomal. However, hundred seed weight was recorded maximum in P-263 (9.75 g), which was at par with Kashi Kanchan and Pusa Sukomal varieties of cowpea.
Key words: Cowpea, varieties, evaluation, seed production
