Effect of Phosphorous on the Growth and Yield of Mungbean

Muhammad Amir Khan, Muhammad Safdar Baloch, Ishtiaq Taj and Inamullah Gandapur


This study was conducted to find out the optimum phosphorus levels required for obtaining high yield of mungbean under conditions prevailing in D.I.Khan. The effect of various phosphorus levels on two mungbean cultivars NM-92 and NM-54 revealed that all the yield and yield contributing factors were significantly affected by the application P205. However, no statistical difference between the cultivars was detected. Similarly, the interaction of phosphorus levels with the cultivars was also non-significant. The application of P205 from 60-90 kg ha–1 is recommended for realizing better yield of mungbean.
