The lower productivity of pulses in India is largely due to cultivation of pulses on marginal and sub-marginal lands as main crop or after the harvest of main cereal crop with less or no fertilizer application. Such cultivation practices not only results in lowering of soil fertility and productivity also results in grains low in mineral nutrient elements, consumption of such grains may cause serious health issue in human beings. Keeping these points in view the experiment was laid out in RCBD with twelve treatments including control, RDF alone, RDF + water spray / soil / foliar (Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu and B) application, RDF + seed treatment with MM + Mo and RDF + soil application of deficient micronutrients (Zn and B). Results revealed that application of RDF + foliar application of MM at 30 and 45 DAS recorded significantly higher nutrient content of Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu and B in mungbean seeds, which was 77.44, 80.9, 65.77, 30.68 and 65.39 per cent, respectively higher over control and 43.99, 66.2, 17.90, 21.16 and 20.94 percent, respectively higher over soil application of MM. The soil DTPA extractable iron, zinc and boron content was highest in the treatment receiving soil application of micronutrients mixture along with RDF. The increased availability of micronutrients in the soil significantly improved the nutrient content and grain yield (1140.84 kg ha-1) of mungbean with the foliar and soil application of micronutrients.
