Forty diverse genotypes of pigeon pea were studied for eight important leaf and agronomic attributes. Wide differences were observed for all the characters. Leaf area per plant was positively associated with days to flowering, maturity and yield per plant. LAI was also positively associated with duration of flowering, maturity, seed size and yield per plant.
