Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy farm, of S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan) during kharif 2020 on loamy sand soil, which consisted ten treatments of foliar nutrition (control, RDF, RDF + water spray, RDF+ urea 2% spray at FI, RDF+ DAP 2% spray at FI, RDF+ MOP 2% spray at FI, 19:19:19 (NPK) 2% spray at FI, RDF + B chelate 0.5% spray at FI, RDF + Zn chelate 0.5% spray at FI, RDF + Fe chelate 0.5% spray at FI and RDF+ urea 2% spray at FI) and were tested in randomized block design with three replications. Results indicated that application of RDF+ DAP 2% spray at FI, RDF + MOP 2% spray at FI, RDF+ urea 2% spray at FI, RDF + Fe chelate 0.5% spray at FI, RDF + Zn chelate 0.5% spray at FI and RDF + B chelate 0.5% spray at FI remaining at par with each other significantly increased plant height, dry matter accumulation, total number of tillers, ear length, grains per ear, test weight, grain, stover and biological yield and protein content over control.
