Abstract:

With the aim to evaluate the effect of foliar application of ammonium molybdate on seed quality of soybean variety MAUS-158, a field experiment was carried out at Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth during 2017-2018. The seven treatments consisting of different concentrations of ammonium molybdate i.e. T1-0.4%, T2-0.6%, T3-0.8, T4-1.0 %, T5-1.2%, T6-1.4% and T7-control was applied at 40 and 60 DAS were tested in randomized block design with four replications. Results revealed that germination percentage, root and shoot length, seedling fresh and dry weight, vigour index, seed size showed a significant promotive effect with 1.0 % ammonium molybdate concentration. α-amylase and dehydrogenase activity were recorded to be highest in treatment T4. Increasing concentration of ammonium molybdate above 1.0 % decreased promotive effect in soybean for most seed quality characters.
