Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of biofertilizers (Rhizobium and PSB) and micronutrients (Zn and Mo) on nutrient uptake, growth, yield and yield attributing characters of lentil. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with the eight treatments viz. T1(control), T2 (Seed inoculation with Rhizobium + PSB), T3 (Seed inoculation with Rhizobium + PSB+ 1g Ammonium Molybdate/ kg seed), T4 (RDF, 20:60:20 kg N, P2O5 and K2O), T5 (RDF + Seed Inoculation with Rhizobium + PSB), T6 (RDF+ Seed Inoculation with Rhizobium + PSB+1 g Ammonium Molybdate/ kg seed), T7 (RDF + 25 kg ZnSO4/ha) and T8 (RDF + 25 kg ZnSO4 / ha +Seed inoculation with Rhizobium + PSB + 1.0g Ammonium Molybdate/ kg seed)and three replications with lentil variety NDL-1.The soil of experimental field was silt loam in texture, pH: 8.45, EC: 0.34 dSm-1, O.C: 0.31%, Available N 137 kg ha-1, available P 12 kg ha-1, available K 211 kg ha-1 and bacterial population (33.0 cfu).The highest uptake of N (91.55 kg ha-1), P (8.57 kg ha-1), Zn (654.66 g ha-1) and Mo (278.69 g ha-1) by lentil crop was found with the treatments T8, followed by T6. The maximum growth, yield and yield attributing characters were recorded in T8, which was statistically at par with T6 and significantly superior with rest of the treatments. Whereas maximum 1000 seed weight (26.00) also was recorded in the treatment T8, which was statistically at par with rest of the treatments. The minimum 1000 seed weight was recorded in control.
