Abstract:
A field study entitled ‘Effect of rhizobium, foliar spray of nutrients and plant growth regulators on growth and yield of summer green gram [Vigna radiata (L.)]’ was conducted during summer 2021 at LPU, Phagwara. The treatments comprised of four main plots of foliar sprays (S0, S19:19:19, SGA and SNAA) and three subplots of fertilizers (no fertilizer, rhizobium, recommended dose fertilizer + rhizobium designated as F0, FR and FRDF+R, respectively) with three replications in split plot design. Irrespective of fertilizers, there was significant increase in grain yield with foliar spray of SGA as compared to S0. There was further significant increase in grain yield with foliar spray of S19:19:19 and SNAA. The higher grain yield under the foliar spray of S19:19:19 was accompanied by significant increase in growth and yield attributes. Irrespective of foliar sprays, the fertilizers FR increased the grain yield significantly as compared to F0 but FRDF+R resulted in further significant increase as compared to FR. The higher grain yield of green gram under the application of FRDF+R was accompanied by significant increase in growth and yield attributes. The interaction between foliar sprays and fertilizers was significant. The highest grain yield (1242 kg ha-1) was under the application of FRDF+R with S19:19:19 which was 19% higher than S19:19:19 F0 and 22% higher than S0FRDF+R. FRDF+R when applied in combination with S19:19:19 resulted in maximum gross returns, net returns and B: C ratio.
