Abstract: Foliar application of different levels of seaweed extract and enriched banana psuedostem sap were studied on different varieties of green gram (Vigna radiata) to check their growth yield and economics of the crop certified organic farm, ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during rabi season of the year 2015-16. Among the individual treatment V1and L2 recorded highest value of numbers of pods per plant (53.01 and 62.05) pod length (7.33cm and 8.13cm), number of seeds per pod (10.33 and 11.10)) and number of branches per plant (14.60 and 16.52) respectively but the height highest in V2 treatment. Only one interaction of V1 and L2 had a beneficial effect on number of pods per plant. Seed yield as well as stover yield of green gram followed the similar trend as found in case of yield attributes. Treatment V1 (25.26 q ha-1 stover and 12.81q ha-1 seed) and L2 (28.65 q ha-1 stover and 12.21 q ha-1 seed) yielded significantly highest. From the economics point of view, higher net realization of Rs. 102274.8 ha-1 was obtained with combined application of V1L5 followed by Rs. 100958.9 ha-1 with V1L2 treatment combination. Among liquid fertilizer and variety treatment, L2 (Rs. 84122.8 ha-1) and V1 (Rs. 93299.8ha-1) secured maximum net profit. It was lowest (Rs. 20099.3 ha-1) with treatment combination V2L4.
