Abstract:

The field trial was conducted to study the effect of leaf extracts and panchagavya foliar spray on plant characters, yield and resultant seed quality of blackgram. The blackgram plants were subjected to foliar spray viz., Moringa leaf extract 3%, Panchagavya 3%, Prosopis leaf extract 3% and Neem leaf extract 3% along with control. In field trial, Panchagavya 3% foliar spray recorded higher values for plant characters and yield such as plant height, days to 1st flowering, days to 50% flowering, number of leaves per plant, number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant, pod length, number of seeds per pod, seed yield per plant, seed yield per plot, 100 seed weight and the resultant seed quality from the same treatment registered best seed quality.


Keywords: Field trial, Foliar spray, Panchagavya, Moringa leaf extract, Prosopis leaf extract, Neem leaf extract, Yield and resultant seed quality
