Abstract:

Pigeon pea is majorly grown in north-eastern dry zone of Karnataka and it carries a unique position in every cropping system of this zone. Crop Productivity of pigeonpea is being low in the north-eastern dry zone of Karnataka and this is due to several reasons. One of the main important reason is flower drop and poor seed setting. To overcome and reduce this problem and to enhance productivity of pigeonpea, the Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), Kalburgi, has introduced a product known as Pulse Magic (consists of nutrients and Plant growth regulators) as foliar spray. Foliar spray was carried out during 50% flowering stage and 15 days after 1st Spray. The results obtained  due to foliar spray of Pulse Magic were higher number of pods per plant (212.91), pod weight per plant (78.08g), pod length (5.63cm) and test weight (12.48g), compared to control (120.82, 48.70g, 3.9cmand 9.45g, respectively). Due to increase in yield attributes higher seed yield was obtained (1442 kg/ha), as compared to control (1182 kg/ha). Consequent upon higher yield, higher net returns (Rs.53903/ha) were obtained in Pulse Magic sprayed plot compared to control (Rs.35647/ha).
