A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2016 at Sardarkrushinagar located in the north-Gujarat agro-climatic region. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with replicated thrice. Greengram was sown at distance of 30 cm × 10 cm with seed priming recorded significantly higher growth attributes viz. plant height, seed yield (1035 kg/ha), stover yield (2334 kg/ha), net monetary returns (Rs. 17672/ha) and B: C ratio (1.76). While, number of branches/plant and number of pods/plant was recorded higher under wider spacing of 30 cm × 20 cm with seed priming. Among the integrated nutrient management treatment application of 50% RDF through chemical fertilizer + 50% RDF through castor cake recorded significantly higher plant height, number of branches/plant, pods/plant, number of root nodules/plant, dry weight of root nodules, seed yield (994 kg/ha), stover yield (2235 kg/ha) and net monetary returns (Rs. 16679/ha) and B: C ratio (1.74).

Keywords: Plant geometry, Seed priming, Nutrient management
