Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted to find out the influence of foliar nutrition on growth and seed yield of pulse crop during rabi 2013-14. The experiment was laid out in split plot design and replicated thrice. The pulse crop viz., blackgram, greengram, cowpea and horse gram were tried as treatments under main plot. Foliar nutrient sprays viz., 2 % DAP, 1 % KCL, 1% boron, 1 % MgSO4, 1 % ZnSO4 and without foliar spray were fitted under sub plot. Foliar spray treatment with the aqueous solution of nutrients was done on 30 and 45 DAS of pulse crop. Significant increase was recorded in plant height, dry matter production, and number pods plant-1, number of seeds plant-1, test grain weight, yield and grain yield with foliar application of nutrients. Maximum grain yield was recorded with 2% DAP followed by 1% KCl at flowering and 15 days later was the viable nutrient management package for the pulses for getting higher income through higher productivity.
