Abstract: An field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during summer season of 2016 to evaluate soil application of potassium, zinc and FYM and effect on nutrient content and uptake of green gram (Vigna radiata L.) under south Saurashtra region of Gujarat. The experiment comprising of Three levels of potassium viz., 0, 40, and 60 kg K2O ha-1, zinc sulphate viz., 0 and 10 kg ZnSO4 ha-1 and FYM viz., 0 and 5 t ha-1 and experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design and replicated thrice. The results revealed that the content and uptake of nutrients by seed were significantly influenced by the various levels of potassium, zinc and FYM. The application of potassium 40 and 60 kg K2O ha-1, zinc sulphate 10 kg ZnSO4 ha-1 and 5 t ha-1 FYM significantly increased the N, P, K, S and Zn content and uptake of all nutrients. Potassium, zinc and FYM also increased all nutrient availability in soil after harvest of crop.
