Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during Summer season 2016 to study the “Effect of Plant growth regulators (PGRs) and Micronutrients on flowering and yield parameters of Green Gram (Vigna radiate L.)” on central research farm department of biological science, SHIATS Allahabad. The soil of experimental area falls in order Inceptisol and soil texture was sandy loam. Two varieties of green gram i.e. IPM-0203 and Ganga-8 was used with different concentration of Plant Growth regulators salicylic acid 100, 200 ppm, Brassinolide 0.25, 0.50 ppm, zink 100 ppm and boron 100 ppm of each concentration and one respective control was used. The best treatment was T3 (Brassinolide 0.25 ppm) showed the significant increase on number of flowers per plant (39.30), flower fruit ratio (72.67 %), pollen viability (70 %), number of pods per plant (28.70), pod weight per plant (11.37 gm), pod length (7.30 cm), harvest index (39.43 %), days of maturity (65 days) in variety IPM- 0203. The maximum biological yield (24.50 gm), dry weight per plant (30.30 gm), test weight (50.50 gm), treatment T4 (Brassinolide 0.50 ppm ) in variety IPM- 0203. The maximum day to 50% flowering (40.67 days) in treatment T2 (salicylic acid 200 ppm) in variety IPM- 0203.
