Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Farm, college of agriculture, Bikaner during kharif season of 2016 to evaluate the effect of different levels of phosphorus and sulphur on, growth, yield attributes and nutrient concentration of mungbean. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications, assigning twelve treatments combinations consisting of four levels of phosphorus (control, 15, 30 and 45 kg P2O5 ha-1) and three levels of sulphur (control, 20 and 40 kg S ha-1). The results revealed that application of 30 kg P2O5 ha-1 and 20 kg S ha-1 significantly increased the total leaf chlorophyll content, total and effective root nodules per plant, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, seed and straw yield, nitrogen, potassium, sulphur content and their uptake by seed and straw and protein content in seed. Whereas, the phosphorus content in seed and straw significantly increased with increasing levels of phosphorus up to 45 kg P2O5. The available N, K and S content of soil increased with increasing levels of phosphorus up to 45 kg P2O5 ha-1 but not reached at level of significance. Application of 30 kg P2O5 ha-1 significantly increased the available phosphorus content of soil. Application of 30 kg P2O5 ha-1 significantly increased net returns and B: C ratio of mungbean over control and 15 kg P2O5 ha-1.
