Effect of Phosphorus and Sulphur Application on Growth and Yield Attributes of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L)
International Journal of Plant & Soil Science,
A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2015 at the Crop Research Centre of Department of Agriculture, Mata Gujri College, Sri Fatehgarh Sahib to study Response of phosphorus and sulphur application on Growth and yield attributes of mungbean (Vigna radiata L). The number of plants in meter row length was recorded highest with the application of 40 kg /ha followed by 20 kg S/ha and control. The highest plant height was recorded with the application of 40 kg S/ha which was statistically at par with application of 20 kg S/ha it was significantly superior over the control during all observation stages of crop. However at 30 and 60 DAS, the number of branches per plant recorded maximum with the application of 40 kg P2O5/ha followed by 60 kg P2O5/ha and control. At harvest, the application of 60 kg P2O5/ha recorded highest number of branches per plant but was statistically at par with other levels of phosphorus. The maximum number of grains per pod was recorded with the application of 60 kg P2O5/ha which was statistically at par with 40 kg P2O5/ha. It was found that the pod length was maximum with the application of 40 kg S/ha followed by 20 kg S/ha and control. The maximum grain yield was recorded with the application of 60 kg P2O5/ha which was significantly superior to other treatments.
