Abstract:
An experiment was conducted during 2016-17, to study the effects of foliar application of humic acid through vermicompost wash and NAA on chemical and biochemical parameters and yield of pigeonpea cv. PKV- Tara. The experiment was laid down in randomised block design with twelve treatments and three replications at farm of Botany Section, College of Agriculture, Nagpur. The different treatments tested were 25 and 50 ppm NAA and 300, 400 and 500 ppm humic acid (HA) through vermicompost wash (VCW) alone or in combination. One control (Water spray) treatment was also taken. Foliar application 50 ppm NAA + 400 ppm HA through VCW significantly enhanced chemical and biochemical parameters viz., nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and chlorophyll content in leaves, number of pods plant-1, number of seed pods-1, test weight, and protein content in seeds. Seed yield plant -1 was also significantly enhanced by same treatment when compared with control and rest of the treatments under study. Considering the treatments under study two foliar sprays of 50 ppm NAA + 400 ppm HA through VCW at 45 and 65 DAS was found to be most effective treatment in improving chemical and biochemical parameters and yield of pigeonpea cv. PKV- Tara
