Abstract:

Pulses are an important source of high quality protein complementing cereal proteins for pre-dominantly substantial vegetarian population of the country. Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Mill sp.) is the second most important pulse crop of India after chickpea and is grown for it’s grain as dhal and green seed as a vegetable. A field experiment was conducted at College of Agriculture, Vishweshwaraiah Canal Farm, Mandya during kharif 2017 to study the effect of foliar application of calcium nitrate, boron and humic acid on growth and yield of transplanted pigeonpea. The design followed is randomized complete block design with three replications. Significantly higher grain and stover yield (2093 and 7428 kg ha-1) was recorded for the treatment with foliar spray of humic acid 6 ml L-1 at flower initiation and 15 days after flower initiation along with RDF and FYM (T13) and foliar spray of 0.50% borax at flower initiation and 15 days after flower initiation along with RDF and FYM (T11) recorded the higher B:C ratio (1.82). Similar results were found in growth parameters like plant height (307.33 cm), no. of primary branches per plant (28.67), no. of secondary branches per plant (40.33), leaf area (5110.33 cm2/plant) and total dry matter production per plant (436.67 g) at harvest.
