Effect of Indoleacetic Acid (IAA) on Yield of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.)

M. N. Newaj, M. Sarwar Hossain, Md. Nazrul Islam, M.K. Anam and A.H.M.M. Haque    

Abstract: The effect of foliar application with 300, 600 and 900 ppm IAA was investigated on yield and yield contributing characters of two varieties of mungbean (BARI 2 and BARI 4). IAA at 600 ppm significantly increased the number of seeds/plant, seed yield plant-1, seed yield (t ha 1) and 1000-seeds weight. The variety BARI 4 manifested better performance than BARI 2. BARI 4 plants treated with 600 ppm of IAA had the highest pod length, number of seeds, seed yield/plant and seed yield (t ha-1 ). So, the plants treated with IAA at 600 ppm performed better than those of control and other treatments.
