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% K2
Boric acid (T7
), 0.5% FeSO4
), 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: P2
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.
