Abstract:

A screen house experiment was conducted to understand the influence of phosphorus and boron application on yield and enrichment of seed and straw of green gram. Five levels of phosphorus (0, 25, 50, 75 and 100 mg kg-1) and 4 levels of boron (0, 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 mg kg-1) were applied in pots filled up with 4 kg light texture (sand) soil. Eight seeds of green gram were seeded in each pot and replicated thrice. The soil used in pot had pH 7.90, EC 0.17 dSm-1, organic carbon 0.09%, DTPA Zn 0.36 mg kg-1 and hot water soluble B 0.5 mg kg-1 soil. The results of the study revealed that application of phosphorus and boron have synergistic effect on yield, P and B content in seed and straw of green gram. Highest seed and straw yield, content of P and B in seed and straw was found when 100 mg kg-1 P along with 1.0 mg B kg-1 soil. Application of P and B also improve protein content but their interaction was found non-significant. The uptake of P and B increases with their successive P and B application level.
