Abstract:
A pot experiment was conducted during 2021 pre-kharif season to evaluate the effect of five levels of boron (viz., 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2 kg B ha-1) and two levels of FYM (0 and 5 t ha-1) on boron concentration and dry matter yield of green gram (var. DGGS-4) grown in an acid soil. Results revealed that irrespective of different treatments, there was an increasing trend of boron concentration and dry matter yield up to the harvest of the crop. Significantly higher boron concentration and dry matter yield were recorded in green gram grown in soil applied with boron over control at different crop growth stages. Irrespective of boron application, addition of FYM enhanced boron concentration as well as dry matter yield of the crop. Comparing among the different treatments, combined application of boron at 2 kg ha-1 and FYM at 5 t ha-1 significantly increased the boron concentration and dry matter yield at different crop growth stages. This shows higher efficiency of boron when applied in combination with FYM.
