Phosphorus and Potassium Requirements of Mungbean (Vigna radiata)

F.C. Oad, A. Naqi Shah , G.H. Jamro and S.H. Ghaloo

A field experiment was conducted to assess the growth and yield performance of mungbean (Vigna radiata) varieties under various phosphorus and potash levels at Student’s Experimental Farm, Sindh Agriculture University, Tandojam. Four mungbean varieties viz. AEM/25, AEM-6/20, NM-20/21 and AEM-10/2/87 were tested. Most of the agronomic traits of mungbean varieties were significantly influenced by phosphorus and potassium fertilizers except pod number, seed weight per plant and seed index were non-significant. However, 100-100 PK kg ha‾1 showed an increase in the yield of the crop. Thus, it is recommended that the mungbean crop should be fertilized with phosphorus and potassium at the level of 100-100 PK kg ha‾1 for achieving satisfactory seed yield.
