Abstract:

The low yield of pulses is mainly attributed to their cultivation on poor soils with inadequate and imbalanced nutrient application without the application of organic manures and micronutrients like boron, zinc and iron. Since the poor soils are low in organic matter content, use of organic manures plays a vital role in improving soil physical condition, provides vital plant nutrients and maintains long term productivity of the soil. Boron helps in carbohydrate transport. It is necessary for the germination of pollen, formation of flowers and fruits and for the absorption of cations. The use of inorganic fertilizers along with bulky organic manures was found more advantageous in enhancing crop yields. According to several studies conducted in different crops by scientists over the world revealed that, retention of flowers is possible through foliar application of growth regulators as well as macronutrients during flower initiation and pod development stages along with soil application of micronutrients hence, the review.
