Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to know the effect of growth retardants viz, Maliec hydrazide (MH), Cycocil (CCC) and Lichocin on growth characters, seed quality, yield and yield components in cowpea during the Rabi season 2016-17. The experiment was laid out in RBD with three replications. Results revealed that the application of growth retardant reduced the plant height. The minimum plant height was recorded in MH (500 ppm). The chlorophyll content was differed significantly at 60days it was highest in Lichocin (500 ppm) followed by CCC (1000 ppm). In the entire treatments crop growth rate were increased over control and was highest in Lichocin (1000 ppm). At 90 days after sowing relative growth rate was significantly more in CCC (500 ppm). The yield contributing characters viz, seed yield per plant, number of pods per plant, seed per pod, seed index and seed yield (g m-2) increased significantly due to growth retardants. Among the treatments Lichocin (1000 ppm) recorded significantly higher seed yield than other treatments.
