Dolichos biflorus L. is commonly known as Horse gram and Kulthi in Hindi. It belongs to family Fabaceae. The seeds of Dolichos biflorus have several medicinal properties; anthelmintic, diaphoretic, diuretic, etc.  as a well-enriched source of protein and energy. The calorific value and energy structure of Dolichos biflorus vary among the species.  In this study, our aim was to evaluate the varieties of Kulthi for their better adaption and cultivation in the agro-climatic condition of Hazaribag, Jharkhand. Further, the variation in energy content of these varieties in the above agro-climatic condition. We have collected three varieties of Kulthi (Birsa Kulthi-1 to 3) for this study and followed for 105 days, to evaluate the energy content at different time intervals. We observed these three varieties of Kulthi are different in the relative amount of energy storage at maturity. However, all these three studied varieties of Kulthi (Birsa Kulthi-1 ,Birsa Kulthi-2 ,Birsa Kulthi -3) are ecologically suitable for cultivation in the vicinity of the agro-climatic condition of Hazaribagh, Jharkhand, India.
