Abstract:

Unavailability of low cost pure liming material is a major constraint for pulse growth, nodulation and pod yield under acid soil condition. In this context a field experiment was conducted during summer (2016-17) in the village Haripur of Khordha district, Odisha, India to study the Effect of lime coating and molybdenum seed treatment on nodulation, growth and yield of different pulses grown in Alfisols. The results revealed that seed inoculation with Rhizobium (R) increased seed yield by 16% over no inoculation (336 kg ha-1) and further the yield increased by 14 per cent by combining seed inoculation of Rhizobium with lime coating of seeds. Molybdenum seed treatment @ 10 g sodium molybdate was capable of increasing the seed yield by 45 per cent compared over no Mo treatment. Combination of all packages, further increased the yield by 61 per cent, thereby raising the yield from 336 kg ha-1 due to STD alone to 630 kg ha-1 due to better nodulation along with improvement in growth and yield attributes.
