The pulses are prima facia to alleviate malnutrition from the un-developed and developing countries. The study was conducted during 2015-16 in India to know the effect of plant growth regulators and micronutrients on growth and seed yield of black gram cv. LBG-625 (Rashmi). The results revealed that foliar application of gibberellic acid (GA3) @ 30 ppm at pre-flowering stage recorded significantly higher plant height (56.44 cm), number of leaves plant-1 (24.46), number of branches plant-1 (7.71), days to 50 per cent flowering (40.44 DAS), days to maturity (73.27 DAS), number of cluster plant-1 (8.71), pods plant-1 (33.28), pod weight plant-1 (10.71 g), number of seeds plant-1 (6.57) and seed yield ha-1 (19.52 q/ha) compared to control. GA3 application also showed significant positive impact on the income of farmers. Thus, foliar application of GA3 at pre-flowering stage is essential for high crop yield in black gram.
