The field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2015-16 at dry land farm, on sandy loam soils of Sri Venkateswara Agricultural College, Tirupati situated in Southern Agro-Climatic Zone of Andhra Pradesh. The experiment was layout in randomized block design with ten treatments and three replications. Ten guar genotypes were evaluated. As per the data on days to 50 per cent flowering and days to physiological maturity GAUG-841, GAUG-4703-1 and RGC-936-1 are short duration types (< 94 days) and other genotypes RGC-936, RGG-12-5, RGG-13-4, RGC-1003, RGG-12-3, RGC-986 and GA2G-0503 are long duration (> 100 days).The genotypes RGG-13-4 and RGG-12-3, which showed high seed yield and its attributes viz., number of clusters per plant and number of seeds per pod.
