Abstract:
A field experiment on effect of phosphorus levels on growth and yield of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.) varieties was conducted during Zaid season 2019 at Central Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj, (U.P.). The present investigation was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) which is replicated thrice and the treatments consisted of nine treatments and three components of Varieties like Kashi Gauri, Gomti, Sadabahar and Phosphorus levels i.e 100% RDP, 50% RDP, and 25% RDP viz. whose effect is observed on Cowpea. The experimental findings reveal the growth parameters viz., maximum plant height (53.81cm) was noticed in Sadabahar + 100% RDP. Similarly maximum number of branches/plant (5.60), leaf area index (16.79 m2), number of pods/plant (6.40), number of seeds/pod (13.07), Seed yield (1308.23 kg/ha) was noticed in Gomti + 100% RDP.
