Shobha Pardhi, Rita Bhandari, Moni Thomas
A two year field trial was conduct with 12 varieties of C. cajan. The two year pooled data on the mean weight of total pods and seed yield of C. cajan with lac insects was significantly highest 3307g and 2023g in MA-3 over all the 12 varieties evaluated. The mean weight of 100 seeds C. cajan varieties with lac insect on it varied from 5.85g (Bahar) to 18.10g (Azad).The mean weight of raw dry lac yield per plant from 291.33g (NDA-1) to 519.17 g (MA-3).
