Abstract:

A pot culture and field experiment was conducted to study the effect of potassium on growth characters of green gram cv. VBN 2. The treatments used viz., T1 - Absolute control, T2 - control N, P, (-K), T3 - 10 kg of K2O ha-1, T4 - 20 kg of K2O ha-1, T5 - 30 kg of K2O ha-1, T6 - 40 kg of K2O ha-1, T7 - 10 kg of K2SO4 ha-1, T8 - 20 kg of K2SO4 ha-1, T9 - 30 kg of K2SO4 ha-1, T10 - 40 kg of K2SO4 ha-1. The results revealed that application of T10 - 40 kg of K2SO4 ha-1 recorded higher values for growth characters viz., plant height, number of leaves plant-1, number of branches plant-1, number of nodules plant-1, leaf area index and chlorophyll content respectively over control.
