Abstract:

The present experiment entitled “Effect of macronutrients, micronutrients and rhizobium on growth parameter in French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)” was carried out during Rabi, 2018-19 at Instructional Farm-II of Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Bhubaneswar. The recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) used for French bean was 50:75:75 NPK kg ha-1 along with FYM @ 15 ton ha-1. The chemical fertilizers were applied in three levels i.e. 50 %, 100 % and 150 % of the RDF with various combinations of rhizobium culture and micronutrients. The experiment consisted of twelve treatments in various combinations of different levels of fertilizer with or without rhizobium culture (30 g kg-1 of seed) and micronutrients (0.1 %). The results obtained from the present investigation indicated that the treatment receiving 50:75:75 NPK kg ha-1 (100 % RDF) along with FYM @ 15 t ha-1, rhizobium culture (30 g kg-1 of seed) and micronutrients (0.1 %) recorded significantly higher values as regards growth characters of French bean var. Harsh. Different parameters like plant height (47.96 cm), maximum number of branches (20.17), maximum plant spread (49.75 cm), maximum number of leaves (17.7), maximum leaf area (163.27 sq cm) were also significantly superior than other treatment combinations tried in this experiment. Thus, it may be suggested that RDF with rhizobium culture and micronutrients application increases maximum vegetative growth in case of French bean.
