Abstract:
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) locally known as ‘Methi’ belonging to the family Leguminosae and sub family Papilionaceae. Application of plant growth regulators (PGRs) may play an important role in proper flowering, fruit setting, synchronize maturity, ripening and thereby increase in the physiochemical efficiency and yield of the crops The present investigation was carried on Rabi-2022 cv. Co-2 at the Horticultural Research Farm, Sardar Patel University, Balaghat (M.P.). The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with six treatments in three replications. The plant growth regulator gibberellic acid (GA3) with different concentrations (0, 25, 50 and 75, 100 and 125) was used for the experiment. The data revealed that among the all six treatments of GA3 100 ppm application is very effective for plant height, number of branches per plant, panicle length and 1000 seed weight. GA3 75 ppm application is effective for enhancement of days to 50% flowering, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, number of seeds per plant, seed yield per plant (g) and seed yield per ha (kg) in fenugreek cv Co-2. GA3 75 ppm application is very effective for enhancement of vegetative and yield traits in fenugreek cv. Co-2 .
