Abstract:

A field experiments was carried out in red clay soil during the kharif seasons of 2014 and 2015 at College of Agriculture, Shivamogga, to know the performance of Cluster bean on foliar application of nutrients to enhance the yield and yield attributes. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with nine treatments replicated thrice. The foliar application of nutrients consisted of Urea (2%) at 25 and 45 DAS, DAP (2%) at 25 and 45 DAS, KNO3 (2%) at 25 and 45 DAS, 19:19:19 (2%) at 25 and 45 DAS, 19:19:19 (2%) at 25 + KNO3 (2%) at 45 DAS, KNO3 (2%) at 25 DAS + 19:19:19 (2%) at 45 DAS, ZnSO4 0.5% at 25 DAS + 19:19:19 (2%) at 45 DAS, ZnSO4 0.5% at 25 DAS + KNO3 (2%) at 45 DAS and control. Among the foliar application of nutrients, significantly higher grain yield (612.35 kg ha-1), number of seeds pod-1 (6.17), highest pod length (4.24 cm), higher number of cluster plant-1 (5.57), higher number of pods plant-1 (27.37), higher endosperm content (35.74 %), viscosity (257.12 cps-1), test weight (3.60 g), net returns (`. 13230 ha-1) and B:C ratio (2.00) was associated with foliar spray consisting of 2% DAP at 25 and 45 DAS as compared to other treatments.
