Mr. Dhirajlal Virjibhai Thummar from Gujarat has developed a variety that yields 3,200-3,500 kg per hectare. The crop matures in 95-105 days and bears 35-40 pods per plant. About 90-100 kg of seeds are required for sowing in an hectare. It performs well even in when monsoon is average and requires less irrigation.
