Results showed that SG 02-07-05, SG 98-16-02, J06-11-10 had the highest yield with 24.18 t ha-1, 22.39 t ha-1 and 20.04t ha-1 respectively. SG 02-07-05 significantly outyielded the check variety NSIC 31. Based on the sensory evaluation J06-11-10 was the third top highest yielder. SG 02-05-01, JK 18-4, JK 7-4, SG 02-06-02, JK 23-1, J06- 30-3, SG 02-13-02, (NSIC 20 as check variety) were found highly acceptable with rating of 7-like very much.
