Abstract: Field experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of foliar nutrition on growth and yield of rainfed blackgram. The treatments viz., foliar spray of 2.0% Urea (T1), 2.0% MAP (T2), 1% K2SO4 (T3), 0.3% MgSO4 (T4), 0.3% MnSO4 (T5), 0.5% ZnSO4 (T6), 0.02% Boric acid (T7), 0.5% FeSO4 (T8), 0.05% Na2MoO4 (T9), 2.0% 19:19:19 Mixture (T10), Pulse magic @ 10 g/l (T11), Control (T12) and Absolute control (T13). Foliar spray was taken at flowering stage. Basal dosage of fertilizer 25:50 kg N: P2O5 ha-1 was applied to all plots except absolute control. Among the treatments, foliar spray of Pulse magic @ 10 g/l had the profound effect in improving the growth attributes and further, growth attributes are positively co related to seed yield. Consequetly, foliar spray of Pulse magic @ 10 g/l recorded the highest yield of 1101 kg/ha with a yield increment of 23% over control. The yield enhancement might be due to the improvement in growth traits and yield attributes.
