Effect of Seed Inoculation and Different Fertilizer Levels on the Growth and Yield of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.)

Muhammad Ather Nadeem, Rashid Ahmad and M. Sarfraz Ahmad

Abstract

Response of mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) cultivar NM-98 to seed inoculation and different levels of fertilizer (0-0, 15-30, 30-60 and 45-90 kg N-P2O5 ha-1) was studied under field conditions. Number of pod bearing branches plant-1, number of seed pod-1, 1000-seed weight, seed yield and protein contents were affected significantly by seed inoculation. The application of fertilizer significantly increased the seed yield and maximum seed yield was obtained when 30-60 kg N-P2O5 ha-1 was applied. This increase in seed yield was mainly due to more number of pod bearing branches plant-1, number of seed pod-1 and 1000-seed weight. Seed protein contents were also increased significantly by seed inoculation and fertilizer application. Based on the present findings it can be concluded that mungbean cultivar NM-98 should sown after seed inoculation and given 30-60 kg N-P2O5 ha-1 for obtaining higher seed yield.
