Crop productivity of blackgram being low in North eastern dry zone of Karnataka a field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2016 at Agricultural Research Station, Kalaburagi, UAS Raichur, to study the effect of foliar nutrition on physiological parameters and yield of blackgram under rainfed condition using TAU-1 variety. Among different sources of nutrients, the highest no. of seeds pod (8.7), pod length (6.1 cm), test weight (55.1 g) and seed yield (1101 kg ha-1) was recorded with foliar spray of pulse magic @ 10g/l along with recommended dose of fertilizers, lower (4.8, 3.6 cm, 48.9 g and 894 kg ha-1, respectively) was obtained in treatment were only recommended dose of fertilizers (25:50 kg N: P2O5 ha-1) were applied and the lowest (3.0, 2.2, 16.6 g and 482 kg ha-1, respectively) was obtained in plot were no basal dose of fertilizers were applied and also no foliar spray was given, realizing the importance of nutrition. The yield enhancement might be due to the improvement in physiological traits and yield attributes.

Keywords: Flowering stage, Foliar nutrition, Pulse magic and Seed yield.
