Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at College Farm, S. K. N. College of Agriculture, S. K. N. Agriculture University, Jobner, Rajasthan during 2016 to evaluate the influence of different vermicompost and zinc levels on growth and productivity of kharif season greengram. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design, comprising vermicompost levels (control, VC @ 2.5 t ha-1, VC @ 5.0 t ha-1 and VC @ 7.5 t ha-1) and zinc levels (control, Zn @ 2 kg ha-1, Zn @ 4 kg ha-1 and Zn @ 6 kg ha-1), treatments replicated three times. The increasing levels of vermicompost and zinc increased the chlorophyll content, total number of nodules, effective number of nodules, root density, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, test weight, grain and straw yield in greengram crop. However, the application of vermicompost @ 7.5 t ha-1 along with zinc @ 6 kg ha-1 found superior under loamy sand soil.
