Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during kharif season 2014 at Agronomy Instructional Farm, C.P. College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat, to study the effect of FYM, phosphorus and PSB on nutrient content and uptake by green gram on loamy sand. The experiment encompassed two levels of FYM viz., 0 and10 t ha-1 and seven levels of phosphorus viz., PSB, 20 kg P2O5 ha-1, 20 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB, 30 kg P2O5 ha-1, 30 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB, 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 and 20 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design (Factorial) with three replications. The results revealed that significantly the highest seed (727 kg ha-1) and stover (1399 kg ha-1) yields of green gram was recorded due to application of 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB @ 10 t FYM/ha. Application of phosphorus @ 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB was recorded the maximum removal of nutrients from the soil. The maximum N, P, K, S, Fe and Zn content and uptake by green gram was recorded due to application of 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB over the rest of the treatments. Significantly the highest phosphorus build up in soil after harvest of the crop was observed under the treatment of 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB.
