Abstract: In order to examine effects of different concentrations of growth regulators (chitosan and IBA) on biochemical and yield contributing parameters on soybean a field experiment was carried out in the field of botany section, college of agriculture, Nagpur during 2016-17. Foliar application of chitosan and IBA @ 25, 50, 75, 100 and 125 ppm each were given at vegetative stage (30 DAS) and the data were recorded at 30, 45, 60 and 75 DAS coinciding with vegetative stage, flowering stage and before harvest stage. Application of chitosan and IBA enhanced biochemical parameters viz., chlorophyll content, NPK content in leaves, protein content in seeds, yield contributing characters viz., number of pods plant-1, 100 seed weight, seed yield plant-1 and plot-1. Analysis of data revealed that 25 ppm chitosan considered as most effective concentration in enhancing all biochemical and yield contributing parameters.
