  • Product Description

Pulses are the major sources of dietary protein in the vegetarian diet. Food is complete and balanced only when pulses are added. The World Health Organization recommends a per capita consumption of pulses at 80 grams per day.But at present the per capita availability of pulses is only 40 g day-1 in India. The lower productivity of greengram could be attributed to cultivation in marginal and poor soils, inadequate irrigation, poor management practices, higher susceptibility to pest and diseases and heavy flower drop. Among these, one of the important reasons for poor yield of greengram is its fertilization aspect. Foliar spray of nutrients is the fastest way to boost up crop growth. Under rainfed condition when the availability of moisture becomes scarce the application of fertilizers as foliar spray resulted in efficient absorption and usage. Though foliar spray is not a substitute to soil application but it certainly be considered as a supplement to soil application. The present investigation showed a significant increase in grain yield by the application of growth regulators and chemical fertilizers through foliar along with the recommended dose of fertilizers.
