Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif season 2018 to evaluate the effect of mode of micronutrients application on growth and yield of pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan L.) in sandy loam soil. Nine treatments consisting of micronutrients (Zn, Fe and B) viz. T1 [Control (NPK)], T2 (ZnSO4 @ 25 kg/h), T3 (Fe SO4 @ 40 kg/ha), T4 (Borax@ 10 kg/ha), T5 (ZnSO4+ FeSO4+ Borax), T6 (foliar spray ZnSO4 @ 0.5%), T7 (foliar spray FeSO4 @1%), T8 (foliar spray Borax @ 0.2%), T9 (foliar spray ZnSO4+ FeSO4+ Borax) were tested in RBD with three replications. NPK was commonly applied in all the plots. The experimental results revealed that growth attributes (plant height, number of primary branches), yield attributing traits (pods plant-1, grains pod-1, test weight, dry matter accumulation), yields viz., grain, straw and biological in pigeon pea differ significantly among different treatments and were maximum with the foliar spray of ZnSO4+ FeSO4+ Borax followed by soil application of ZnSO4+ FeSO4+ Borax.
