Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out during the kharif season 2018 at Crop Research Centre of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel of Agriculture and Technology, Meerut (U.P) to evaluate the effect of mode of micronutrients application on yield of pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan L.) in sandy loam soil. Nine treatments consisting of micronutrients (Zn, Fe and B) viz T1 [Control (NPK)], T2 (ZnSO4@ 25 kg/h), T3 (Fe SO4@ 40 kg/ha), T4 (Borax@ 10 kg/ha), T5 (ZnSO4+ FeSO4+ Borax), T6 (foliar spray ZnSO4@0.5%), T7 (foliar spray FeSO4 @1%), T8 (foliar spray Borax@0.2%), T9 (foliar spray ZnSO4+ FeSO4+ Borax) were tested in randomized block design with three replications. Recommended doses of NPK was commonly applied in all the plots. The experimental results revealed that yields viz., grain, straw and biological pigeon pea differ significantly among different treatments and were maximum with the foliar spray of ZnSO4+ FeSO4+ Borax followed by soil application of ZnSO4+ FeSO4+ Borax. Therefore, the combined application of various micronutrients should be taken into consideration.
