Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2013-2014 at the research plot of Department of Seed Science & Technology, Central Research Station, OUAT, Bhubaneswar, Odisha. This field investigation was carried out with the objectives of improving the efficacy of inoculated Rhizobium on seed quality attributes in black gram cv. Prasada by application of micronutrients. The experiment was laid out in 3×2 m2 plots in a randomized complete block design with 3 replications to assess the effect of different micronutrients both as single and in combinations. The soil application of mixture of zinc sulphate @ 25 Kg/ha and borax @ 10 Kg/ha recorded significantly higher emergence percentage (86.67%) as compared to soil application of zinc sulphate @ 25 Kg/ha and soil application of zinc chelate @ 500 gm/ha. Soil application of mixture of zinc sulphate @ 25 Kg/ha and borax @ 10Kg/ha exhibited highest values of vigour index-I (3647.05) which was found at par with soil application of zinc chelate @ 500 gm/ha, seed treatment mixture and soil application of zinc sulphate @ 10 Kg/ha. Vigour index-II was found highest (2876.33) in seed treatment with mixture of ammonium molybdate @ 5 gm/ha and cobalt nitrate @ 1 gm/ha which was at par with other treatments except soil application of ZnSo4@ 25 Kg/ha alone, Borax @ 5 Kg/ha, and seed treatment with cobalt nitrate alone.
