Response of nitrogen, Sulphur and foliar application of zinc on yield and quality of greengram (Vigna radiata L.)

Author(s): RS Muniswamy, Vikram Singh and Prasad Mithare
Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2015 at Crop Research Farm SHUATS, Allahabad & the experiment consisted of two levels of nitrogen viz., 15, 25 kg ha–1, three levels of Sulphur viz., 0, 20, 40 kg ha–1 and two levels of 0.1% zinc spray at pre-flowering and pod initiation stage which laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) & replicated thrice. Application of 25 kg N ha–1 + 40 kg S ha–1 + 0.1% zinc (Pre flowering and Pod initiation) significantly increased yield & quality parameters viz, Maximum number of pods plant–1 (30.33), Test weight (41.68 g), Seed yield (8.89 q ha-1), Stover yield (27.10 q ha–1). Similarly application of 25 kg N ha–1 + 40 kg S ha–1 0.1% zinc (Pre flowering and Pod initiation) recorded maximum harvest index (24.73 %), Protein content (24.83 %), Gross return (₹ 44092.0 ha–1), Net return (₹ 24739.0 ha–1) and B:C ratio (2.30) while lowest gross return (₹ 29083.0 ha–1), net return (Rs 11109.0 ha–1) and B:C ratio (1.61) was obtained in treatment T1 (control) respectively.
