Abstract: The experiment was conducted during the rabi season in randomized block design (RBD) with three replicated and variety K- 468. The application of nitrogen alone and in combination with micronutrients namely B, Mo and Fe significantly increased the grain yield as compared to control. Plots treatment T5 (20 kg N ha-1 + Fe @ 10 kg ha-1) produced significantly higher yield as compared to other treatments and minimum yield was recorded with control. Maximum plant height (30, 45, 60 & 90 DAS) was recorded with treatment T5 followed by the other treatments in decreasing order T5> T4> T3> T1> T2> T0. the maximum number of primary branches at 30 DAS was found with the treatment T5 followed by the other treatments and number of secondary branches per plant recorded at 30 days after sowing showed that the maximum number of branches were found with treatment T5 (20 kg N ha-1 + Fe @ 10 kg ha-1) followed by treatments in decreasing order as T4, T3, T1, T2, and T0. The initial soil characteristics in the experimental field of soil reaction (soil pH) were noticed neutral (pH 7.34). The physical and chemical conditions were conducive gram cultivation under nitrogen levels and micronutrients condition of cultivation practice.
