Abstract: The present investigation was carried out with 50 genotypes of cluster bean during summer using Randomized Block Design with three replications. Significant variations were recorded among the genotypes for growth and yield parameters. Among the 50 accessions, CT 1 (IC- 311392) was taller and recorded highest pod yield per plant, number of pods per cluster, maximum pod length and CT 21 (IC- 402299), CT 29 (IC 415153), CT 36 (IC 415162), CT 42 (IC 421812) recorded more number of branches. The quality analysis exhibited a wide range for protein content, fibre content in pod and gum content in endosperm of the seed. The crude protein content was found to be highest in CT 48 (IC- 421822) of 28.57 per cent whereas the minimum protein content was recorded by the accession CT 6 (IC- 329038) (14.53 per cent). Maximum guar gum content (41.23 per cent) was recorded in the accession CT 30 (IC- 415154), followed by CT 11 (IC- 370509) of 40.63 per cent. The least gum content of 18.67 per cent was observed in the accession CT 35 (IC- 415161).
