Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2016 at college farm, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari to study the “Response of greengram (Vigna radiata L.) to different level of phosphorus and organic liquid fertilizer”. Total nine treatment combinations comprising of three levels of phosphorus viz., P0 (0 kg P2O5/ha), P1 (20 kg P2O5/ha), P2 (40 kg P2O5/ha) and three levels of organic liquid fertilizer viz., O1 (Spraying of Novel liquid fertilizer @10 ml/liter of water at branching), O2 (Spraying of Novel liquid fertilizer @10 ml/liter of water at flowering) and O3 (Spraying of Novel liquid fertilizer @10 ml/liter of water at branching and flowering) were evaluated in factorial randomized block design with four replications. Phosphorus applied @ 40 kg/ha recorded significantly higher plant height at 60 DAS and at harvest, number of branches per plant, dry matter production per plant, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod and length of pod over control. Significantly the higher seed and haulm yields of 1168 and 2475 kg/ha as well as protein content (19.34%) and protein yield (226.20 kg/ha) of green gram were produced with the 40 kg P2O5/ha over control, respectively. The maximum gross realization Rs.76268/ha, net realization Rs. 55302/ha and the BCR value of 3.64 were also observed higher under the application of 40 kg P2O5/ha. Number of pods per plant, seeds per pod, pod length and seed yield (1139 kg/ha) of green gram were found remarkably higher under the spraying of Novel liquid fertilizer @10 ml/liter of water at branching and flowering stage as compared to the control, The haulm yield, harvest index and protein content were not affected significantly by the spraying of organic liquid fertilizer. Whereas, protein yield of green gram was also found remarkably higher under the same treatment. The maximum gross realization of ₹ 74260 ha-1, net realization of ₹ 52631ha-1 and BCR value of 3.43 were secured under the spraying of Novel liquid fertilizer @10 ml/liter of water at branching and flowering stage over rest of treatments.
