Abstract

The field experiment was conducted during Rabi 2022 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P). The soil of the experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.2), low in organic carbon (0.22 %), available N (171.48 kg/ha), available P (12.3 kg/ha) and available K (235.7 kg/ha). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with nine treatments and one control plot each replicated three based on one-year experimentation. The results showed that treatment with the application of Laxmi + Boron at 20 kg/ha recorded a significantly higher number of Siliquae/plant (259.00), Number of seeds/siliquae (15.00), Test weight (6.12 g), Seed yield (2.05 t/ha) and Stover yield (6.30 t/ha).
