Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of fertigation and foliar application of nutrients on yield and quality of french bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.).The experiment consisted of four main plots i.e., different levels of fertigation and three sub plots i.e., foliar spray of different nutrient solutions. The experiment was conducted in split plot design and it was replicated thrice.100 per cent RDF through fertigation and foliar application of 0.5 per cent vegetable special recorded maximum number of pods per clusters (7.87), more number of clusters per plant (6.73), yield per plant (171.73 g) and yield per hectare (8.22 t).Quality parameters like higher pod length (14.44 cm), pod width (0.9 cm) and fresh pod weight (10.33 g) was also recorded in the same treatment. Higher shelf life, higher moisture content (89.63%), higher firmness (4.06 kg/cm2) and higher crude fibre content(16.48%)was recorded in 100 per cent RDF through fertigation and foliar application of 0.5 per cent vegetable special compared to other treatments. The physiological loss in weight recorded on 2, 4, 6 and 8 days, exhibited lower values with 100 per cent RDF through fertigation and foliar application of 0.5 per cent vegetable special.
