Abstract:

A pot experiment was conducted at CCSHAU, Hisar during the year 2010-11 to study the effect of zinc fertilization on green gram productivity and grain quality. Zinc was applied @ 0, 5.5 kg as basal and 0.1% Zn as foliar application. Seven green gram genotypes viz. Asha, Basanti, Satya, MH-421, MH 318, and MH-565 were selected for the study. Pods per plant, seeds per pod and seed weight significantly increased with the application of Zn which ultimately increased the yield of seed and straw of all the green gram genotypes. However, application of 5.5 kg Zn ha-1 increased the yield of straw by 30.8% which was better as compare to foliar treatment. The maximum Zn concentration in straw and seed (about 5 and 3 folds over control) was achieved when foliar spray was made. Soil application of Zn increased the seed crude protein content by 9.96 % over control.
