Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Rabi 2022 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P). The soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.1), low in organic carbon (0.36%), available N (171.48 kg/ha), available P (15.2 kg/ha) and available K (232.5 kg/ha). The experiment was laid out on Randomized Block Design with nine treatments each replicated thrice on the basis of one year experimentation. The treatments which are T1: Broadcasting + Zinc 5 Kg ha-1, T2: Line sowing + Zinc 5 Kg ha-1, T3: Ridge sowing + Zinc 5 Kg ha-1, T4: Broadcasting + Zinc 10 Kg ha-1, T5: Line sowing + Zinc 10 Kg ha-1, T6: Ridge sowing + Zinc 10 Kg ha-1, T7: Broadcasting + Zinc 15 Kg ha-1, T8: Line sowing + Zinc 15 Kg ha-1, T9: Ridge sowing + Zinc 15 Kg ha-1 are used. The results showed that application of Line sowing + Zinc 15 Kg ha-1 was recorded significantly higher Plant height (43.39 cm), Nodules/plant (20.29), Plant dry weight (8.18 g/plant), whereas significantly highest Crop growth rate (3.75 g/m2/day) was recorded with the treatment Ridge sowing + Zinc 5 Kg ha-1. However, Pods/plant (30.29), Number of Seeds/Pod (1.87), Test weight (224.30 g), Seed yield (1.82 t/ha), Stover yield (3.29 t/ha, Harvest index (35.59%) was obtained in the treatment of Line sowing + Zinc 15 Kg ha-1 compared to other treatments.
