Punjab Agricultural University has been an active in finding new varieties and new method of farming in order to increase the produce and reduce the effect of insects/bacteria on them crops.
Here is the list of latest new 9 varieties from Punjab Agricultural University.
Variety PR 124 posseses long slender and translucent grains with good cooking quality. It gives an average paddy yield of 30.4 q/acre and showed superiority of 7.5 and 2.31 % over checks PR 116 and PR 121, respectively. It is lodging tolerant and resistant to all the ten pathotypes of bacterial blight pathogen. It matures in 135 days which is 5-7 days earlier than PR 116 (140 days) and PR 121 (142 days).
This variety of American cotton recorded 7.9 q/acre seed cotton yield at 67.5 x 10.0 cm spacing against 7.0 q/acre of LH 2108 at 67.5 x 60.0 cm spacing, showing 12.6 % superiority. F2383 was shorter in height (121.8 cm) as compared to LH 2108 (147.9 cm) and is suitable for mechanical picking of bolls.
This variety of American cotton, yielded 7.4 q/acre which is 7.2 and 12.61 per cent more than the check varieties LH 2108 and RCH 650 BG II, respectively.
