Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of foliar application of micronutrients and methanol on seed yield of soybean involving four chemical spray viz., Control, FeSO4 @ 0.50%, ZnSO4 @ 0.25% and Methanol @ 20% (v/v)] and six genotypes viz., Kalitur, Birsa soya, JS-9305, JS-335, JS-71-05 and Co-1 with 24 treatment combinations at the Water and Land Use Management Institute (WALMI) Farm, UAS, Dharwad during 2012 and 2013. The experiment results of pooled data revealed that, FeSO4 @ 0.50% foliar application recorded higher plant height at 90 DAS (58.16 cm), number of branches at 90 DAS (5.42) and number of trifoliate leaves at 60 DAS (19.35) compared to control. Seed yield and its components revealed the marked variations among the foliar application of micronutrients and methanol during the study. The maximum number of pods (50.81), pod length (4.09 cm), number of seeds per pod (3.20), seed yield per plant (21.78 g), seed yield (22.49 q/ha) and seed recovery (79.06%) were observed in plants sprayed with FeSO4 @ 0.50% compared to control. Among the genotypes, Kalitur genotype registered higher plant height at 90 DAS (61.23 cm), number of trifoliate leaves at 60 DAS (21.22) and whereas higher number of branches per plant (5.50) recorded in JS-9305 compared to other genotypes. However in, seed yield and its yield attributing parameters JS-335 recorded significantly higher number of seeds per pod (3.28), pod length (4.05 cm) followed by JS-9305 (3.26 and 4.26 cm, respectively). The higher number of pods per plant (51.72), seed yield per plant (22.47 g), seed yield per ha (23.45 q) and seed recovery (79.83%) were observed in JS-335.
