Pigeonpea affected due to water logging

Pigeonpea is :

  • A warm-season plant.
  • Best adapted to the lower altitude regions of the tropics and sub-tropics.
  • Growth is generally superior at warm temperatures, and poor under low temperatures.
  • Well adapted to drought-prone environments.

In India pigeonpea is sown mainly as a rainy-season crop, and grown through to maturity in the subsequent dry season (rabi) on stored soil water.
