Abstract:
The yield of black gram is very poor as compared to many other legume crops. Indian soils are medium to poor status within both available nitrogen and phosphorus. Therefore, the present investigation is carried out to study the effect of different treatments on growth, yield attributes, the yield for summer black gram. Field experiment is conducted during the summer season of the years 2020 and 2021 on black gram in Rajkot (Gujarat). Six treatments comprised of alone and combined application of chemical fertilizers (50% and 100% RDF) and biofertilizers (Seed treatment with Rhizobium and application PSM on the soil) following randomized block design (RBD) with four replications. The results of the experiment revealed that treatment T6 increased significantly the growth parameters vis., plant height and number of branches/plant, however, plant height was remained statistically on par with treatment T2 in the pooled results. Treatment T6 increased significantly the yield attributes viz., number of pods /plant, number of grains/pod, and 100-grain weight. Treatment T6 recorded significantly higher grain yield 989 kg ha-1 and straw yield 1972 kg ha-1. However, grain yield was remained statistically on par with treatment T2 in the pooled results.
