The present investigation on study of “Evaluation of different cowpea varieties and genotypes” was carried out during summer season in the year 2014-2015 The study was under taken on 30 varieties and genotypes of cowpea using randomized block design with three replication. The variety and genotypes found to be varied growth, yield and quality parameters. Among these 30 types maximum plant height was recorded in variety Akola selection (70.40 cm) were as minimum plant height was recorded in genotype CL-5  (26.33 cm). For days required to first flowers, maximum days taken by genotype CL-23 (71.33 days) were as the minimum days required for variety Vanita (40.80), similarly for days to  50 % flowering, genotype CL-23 recorded  (75.40 days) and minimum for  variety Vanita taken (45 days ) . For number of green pods per cluster, maximum was recorded in AKCP-20 (3.53) followed by CL-14, were as was minimum was recorded in CL-10 (2.40). Similarly for number of pods per plant, maximum number of pods were recorded in CL-14 (87.80) followed by AKCP-20 (71.73), were as minimum was recorded in AKCP-99 (38.70). In case of Pod length, maximum was recorded in Gadchiroli local-2 (25.60) followed by Akola selection (25 cm) and minimum was recorded selection-5 (11.93). For yield characters average pod weight maximum pod weight for recorded in CL-24 (8.55 gram) were minimum was recorded in Gomati (4.10 gram).For yield per hectare maximum was recorded in CL-14 (157.69 quintal) minimum was recorded in Gomati (71.93 quintal). For protein content maximum protein content was recorded Arka samrudhi (23.80%) was minimum was recorded in Gadchiroli local-2 (15.88 %).

Key words: Cowpea, Gomati, Genotypes, Varieties, Flowers.
