Abstract:
The present investigation deals with the study of impact of micronutrient towards growth, development and physiology of crop plants under varying conditions ranging from deficiency to excess. Under laboratory condition, the impact of different levels of molybdenum on germination, seedling growth and other physiological attributes of Bengal gram (Cicer arietinum) were studied. Cicer arietinum seeds were selected and sown in Petri dish with different treatment solutions except control. Each treatment was replicated thrice. Morphological, growth and biochemical attributes of gram seedlings were measured during the experimental period. The present investigation showed that, there is significant (p<0.05) increase in % germination for all the treatments. Fresh weight and dry weight of gram seedlings significantly (p<0.05) increased up to 2 ppm molybdenum concentration and then reduced. Significant (p<0.05) increase in the level of sugar, chlorophyll were recorded upt o 7.5 ppm of molybdenum treatment and for ascorbic acid it is up to 6 ppm. From the enzyme assays, significant reduction (p<0.05) of peroxidase and nitrate reductase activity and enhanced catalase activity were observed at higher concentration of molybdenum treatment. From the Scanning electron microscopic study it was found that molybdenum has pronounced effect on the structural organization of root, shoot and leaves.
