Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2020 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P). The soil of the experiment plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction with a pH (7.21), low in organic carbon (0.536%), available N (163.42 kg/ha), available P (21.96 kg/ha) and available K (256.48 kg/ha). The treatments consist of soil application of boron (1 kg/ha, 2 kg/ha and 3 kg/ha) and foliar application of zinc (10 kg/ha, 20 kg/ha and 30 kg/ha). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design which consist of 10 treatments and were replicated thrice. The results revealed that maximum plant height was recorded significantly higher viz. 84.54 cm, number of branches/plant (4.20), number of root nodules/plant (24.32), maximum dry weight (16.30 g), number of pods/plant (9.07), number of seeds/pod (10.67), 100 seeds weight (130.73 g), seed yield (814.13 kg/ha), stover yield (1257.40 kg/ha) and harvest index (39.47%) were recorded with foliar application of Boron 3 kg/ha (foliar) + Zinc 30 kg/ha (soil application). Whereas, crop growth rate was recorded maximum in Boron 3 kg/ha (foliar) + Zinc 20kg/ha (soil application) and relative growth rate was in (foliar) Boron 3 kg/ha + (soil application) Zinc 10 kg/ha.
