Response of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) To Different Levels of Phosphorus

M. Ayub, R. Ahmad, A. Tanveer, J. Iqbal and M.S. Sharar

Abstract:
Seed yield in green gram was increased progressively with phosphorus application up to 75 kg P2O5 ha–1. The application of P2O5 more than 75 kg ha–1 depressed the yield and yield components. Maximum increase in seed yield, recorded at 75 kg P2O5 ha–1 was about 92% of control. Higher seed yield with phosphorus application was related to the higher number of pod bearing branches, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod and 1000-grain weight. Protein contents were also influenced significantly by phosphorus application, being maximum (27.01%) at phosphorus level of 75 kg ha–1. Phosphorus application of 75 kg ha–1 seems to be the optimum level for harvesting higher yield in green gram.
