New Yard Long Bean Selection Arka Mangala for high yield

Order: 
-50

ICAR-IIHR identified a new Yard Long Bean Selection Arka Mangala for high yield
Yard Long Bean (Vigna unguiculata sub sp sesquipedalis L.) is an important legume vegetable grown for its tender long green pods.  Arka Mangala had maximum number of pods per plant (42). Yield performance during the kharif seasons of 2009  to 2010 has indicated that Selection Arka Mangala has given average yield of 25 t /ha, while the check varieties Lola and Vyjayathi gave pod yield of  20.75 and 19.75  t/ha respectively. The percent yield increase in Arka Mangala over check varieties Lola and Vyjayathi was 24 and 30 in that order. During rabi also yields were almost similar.
Plants are tall pole type require staking. Pods are crisp, long (70-80cm), tender, green. Seeds 20-22. Pods are string less can be snapped very easily are without with out parchment. This variety is mainly proposed for the fresh market. The pods are tender, devoid of parchment and the whole pod is suitable as vegetaCultivation of this variety by the farmer will be highly beneficial as it is high yielding.ble.

In the observance of Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the IIHR, an awareness meet was organised at CHES, Bhubaneswar on 20th Jan 2017 for sensitization of institutes/ agencies/personnel involved in the production and supply of banana planting materials in Odisha state. Initiating the proceeding of the meet, Dr. H. S. Singh, Head of the station welcomed the delegates and briefed about the investigations on banana blast and pitting disease being carried out at the Station.  He informed the gathering about the genesis of the investigations based on the similar disease reported from Burhanpur, Madhya Pradesh in 2013.

Sangeetha, Senior Scientist and convener of the meet highlighted the potential of this hitherto unknown pathogen  affecting the fruit quality which cause considerable economic loss to the growers. In her presentation, she also highlighted about the diagnostic symptoms of blast and pitting symptoms occurring on planting materials as well as on maturing plants and fruits. She elaborated about the  mode of pathogen spread, its seasonality and most importantly its management strategies and  emphasised the ways to contain the spread of this disease inside greenhouses/polyhouses and prophylactic measures to be followed. Further, she also pointed out the need of adjusting the planting time in such a way the fruiting period should not coincide with rainy season i.e., from July to September which happens to be the monsoon season of Odisha state.

The delegates from tissue culture companies committed to carry the useful and informative message of this awareness meet to their respective agencies and ensure the supply of planting material free from this fungal disease too, to the farmers.
