Abstract:

A field experiment was undertaken during the rabi season of 2016-17 at Research Farm of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, CAU, Imphal to study the effect of phosphorus (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg P2O5/ha) on growth and yield of three lentil varieties (PL4, HUL 57 and DPL 62).Application of 40 kg P2O5/ha significantly enhanced the plant height, number of branches per plant, dry weight per plant, number and dry weight of nodules per plant, number of pods per plant, seeds per pod, seed yield (11.07 q/ha), stover yield (18.21 q/ha), crude protein content in seed and protein yield over control. Varieties showed significant influence in all characters except number and dry weight of nodules per plant and protein content. The highest seed yield was recorded in HUL 57(10.45 q/ha) which remained at par to DPL 62 (10.11 q/ha) and the lowest was observed in PL 4 (9.42 q/ha). Among the varieties, HUL 57 and DPL 62 were superior to PL 4 in respect of growth, yield and quality. HUL 57 fertilized with 40 kg P2O5/ha produced the highest seed yield.
