Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan) during kharif, 2015 on loamy sand soil. The twenty treatment combinations consisting of five clusterbean varieties (RGC-936, RGC-1017, RGC-1033, RGC-1002 and RGC-197) and four levels of molybdenum (control, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 kg Mo/ha) were tested in randomized block design with three replications. Results revealed that variety RGC-1033 proved significantly superior to RGC- 936, RGC-1017, RGC-1002 and RGC-197 in respect of total number and dry weight of nodules. Similarly, the seed yield (1862 kg/ha) and stover yield (3821 kg/ha) were also significantly higher with variety RGC-1033. A significant increase in N, P, K and Mo concentration and their uptake by grain and straw and protein content in seed, were also recorded with variety RGC-1033. Application of 1.0 kg Mo/ha significantly increased fresh and dry weight of nodules. Result showed that molybdenum application at 1.0 kg/ha significantly increased seed, stover and biological yield, N, P and Mo concentration in seed and their uptake and protein content in seed. The per cent increase in seed yield with 1.0 kg Mo/ha was 22.1 and 8.0, respectively, over control and 0.5 kg Mo/ha. However, application of 1.5 kg Mo/ha remained at par with 1.0 kg Mo/ha.
