Abstract:

Present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of thiourea application on the productivity of lentil in rain fed conditions of central India. The lentil crop was grown with different magnitudes of the thiourea. The results of the study revealed that, the applications of thiourea @ 500 ppm followed by thiourea @ 1000 ppm at pre flowering and pod initiation stages were significantly improved the growth and yield of lentil. The plant height (42.95 cm) under the treatment with thiourea @ 500 ppm followed by thiourea @1000ppm at pre flowering and pod initiation was observed significantly higher among the all other treatments. Similar trends were noted with respect to the total number of pods per plant (163), number of seeds per pod (1.5) and test weight (2.38 g). The biological yield and grain yield were also found significantly higher in the treatment receiving thiourea @500ppm followed by thiourea @1000ppm. The total biomass yield (3652 kg/ha) and grain yield (1279 kg/ha) were found highest in the treatment where thiourea applied @ 500 at pre flowering and pod initiation stages. An increase of 20% in the grain yield of lentil was noted with the application of thiourea @ 500ppm at pre flowering and pod initiation stage as compared to control treatment. In conclusion, the lentil crop responds positively to the application of the thiourea with enhancement in the agronomical performance and productivity.
