Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during the kharif season of 2017 to study the Response of Soybean (Glycine max L. Merrill) to Foliar Application of Nutrients. The treatments comprised of spraying of water spray + RDF, 2% Urea + RDF, 2% DAP + RDF, 0.5% MOP + RDF, 2% 19:19:19 (NPK) + RDF, 0.1% Molybdenum + RDF, 0.2% Boron + RDF and 0.5% Zinc chillated + RDF at pod initiation stage and RDF only was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. Different treatments effects on growth, yield and quality parameters were found significant. Application of 2% Urea + RDF showed highest plant height and application of 2% DAP + RDF produced maximum number of pods per plant. 0.1% Molybdenum + RDF was recorded higher number of root nodules, fresh weight and dry weight of the nodules per plant. Foliar application of 2% 19:19:19 (NPK) + RDF showed the highest seed and stover yield. 2% Urea + RDF showed better performance in oil content and protein content in seeds and also recorded higher amount of available nutrients in soil. The highest net return (Rupees 55290) was obtained from the application of 0.2% Boron + RDF.
