Abstract

The field study took place in rabi season 2022 at the CRF, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higgin bottom University of Agriculture, Technology, and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P.). To ascertain the “Effect of Priming of Micronutrients on Growth and Yield of Linseed.” The soil of experimental plot was sandy loamy in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.8), low in organic carbon (0.35%). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with ten treatments which are replicated thrice. The treatment combinations are T1: Iron Sulphate 2500 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 3000 ppm T2: Iron Sulphate 2500 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 4000 ppm T3: Iron Sulphate 2500 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 4500 ppm T4: Iron Sulphate 3000 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 3000 ppm T5: Iron Sulphate 3000 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 4000 ppm T6: Iron Sulphate 3000 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 4500 ppm T7: Iron Sulphate 3500 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 3000 ppm T8: Iron Sulphate 3500 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 4000 ppm T9: Iron Sulphate 3500 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 4500 ppm T10: Control  (N:P:K-60:40:30 Kg/ha) are used. Results obtained that the higher plant height (55.68 cm), plant dry weight (21.73 g/plant), number of branches (9.44), number of pods/plant (54.61), number of seeds/pod (7.92), test weight (8.57g), seed yield (10.23 q/ha) and stover yield (17.41 q/ha) were significantly influenced with application of Iron Sulphate 3500 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 4500 ppm. Higher gross return (1,07,800.00 INR/ha), net return (71,766.00 INR/ha) and B:C ratio (1.99) were also recorded in treatment-9 (Iron Sulphate 3500 ppm + Ammonium Molybdenum 4500 ppm).

Keywords: Linseed, micro-nutrients, iron sulphate, ammonium molybdenum, growth parameters, yield attributes, economics
