Abstract

During the summer of 2022, the experiment was carried out at a crop research farm for agricultural research in the department of agronomy. The treatments included three levels of boron application to the soil (1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 kg/ha), Rhizobium seed inoculation at 10 and 20 g/kg, and PSB seed inoculation at 10 and 20 g/kg and a control. Ten treatments were used in the experiment, which was designed as an RBD and triple replicated. Inoculating seeds with 2.0 kg of boron and 10g/kg each of Rhizobium and PSB resulted in the maximum plant height, number of branches, number of nodules, maximum plant dry weight, CGR, RGR, and yield parameters such as more pods per plant, seeds per pod, test weight, and seed yield and stover yield.
