Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2018 at Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya, Chitrakoot Satna (M.P.) to evaluate the performance of mungbean with foliar spray of zinc and iron. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replication. Treatments consisted absoult control, 0.5% ZnSO4 Spray at FI, 0.5% ZnSO4 Spray at FI and PI, 0.5% FeSO4 spray at FI, 0.5% FeSO4 spray at FI and PI, 0.5% ZnSO4 + 0.5% FeSO4 Spray at FI, 0.5% ZnSO4 + 0.5% FeSO4 Spray at FI and PI and 25 Kg ZnSO4 Soil application. Plant height nodules/plant and branches/plant were not influenced significantly by foliar spray of zinc and iron treatment. Yield attributes viz: pods per plant was significantly improved with 0.5% FeSO4 spray at FI. Significantly maximum seed yield (571 kg/ha) and pod length (6.30 cm) was recorded under 0.5% ZnSO4 Spray at FI and PI. Foliar applicaton 0.5% ZnSO4 Spray at FI, 0.5% ZnSO4 Spray at FI and PI, 0.5% FeSO4 spray at FI, 0.5% FeSO4 spray at FI, 0.5% ZnSO4 + 0.5% FeSO4 Spray at FI, 0.5% ZnSO4 + 0.5% FeSO4 Spray at FI and PI and T8: 25 Kg ZnSO4 Soil application enhanced seed yield of mungbean by 36.85%, 47.16%, 14.69%, 27.31%, 32.98%, 18.04% and 43.04% over control, respectively. However Gross returns (₹ 48676/ha) net returns (₹28537/ha) and B:C ratio (2.41) was earned significantly higher under 0.5% ZnSO4 Spray at FI and PI.
