A field experiment was carried out entitled “Performance of Mucuna germplasms under Lucknow conditions” in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The experiment was conducted at the Horticulture Research Farm of the Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Lucknow-226025 during Rabi season of 2016. The analysis of performance was studies in seven diverse germplasm of Mucuna. Considerable variation was recorded for all the characters. The observations were recorded on sixteen characters viz. plant height (m), length of leaf (cm), petiole length (cm), leaf/ petiole ratio, number of seed per pod, weight of dry pod/ plant, girth of stem (cm), yield per plant (g), number of branches/ plant, pod number per plant, weight of 100 Seed   (g), number of cluster/ plant, moisture (%),crude Protein (%) and ascorbic acid (mg/100g). Overall greater performance under Lucknow conditions of significantly superior in all characters i.e. growth, yield and quality was recorded in Arka Danjanthri.

Key words: Growth, Yield, Quality, Mucuna
