For any crop production, the time for sowing seeds and different promising varieties is important for economical yield. Suitable varieties availability is a major lacking factor as a pole type French bean cultivation in Odisha during off-time. Very little information is available on different aspects of pole type cultivation of French bean cultivation in the Southern part of Odisha. The present investigation was conducted at Post Graduate Research Farm, Centurion University of Technology and Management, Paralakhemundi, Odisha during early rabi 2022. The experiment was carried out the for the performance study of four different planting dates (3rd September, 18th September, 2nd October and 17th October) and five French bean varieties (Ayoka-427, Gloria, Akamsha, Raikia Bean, Moraleda) in Split Plot Design with three replications. The result of the experiment revealed the effect of planting dates in the highest plant height, minimum days took to first flowering, days to 50% flowering, maximum primary branch number, number of green pods per cluster, number of green pods per plant, average green pod weight, green pod length, pod width, pod yield per plant and green pod yield per hectare was observed on 17th October which was noted statistically similar or followed by the planting date 2nd October. Among the varieties, Ayoka-427 and Raikia Bean excelled in other varieties in different growth parameters, flowering, yield and yield attributes. Hence it can be concluded that Ayoka-427 and Raikia Bean may be suggested to the farmers to cultivate in October month under the Southern part of Odisha.
