Abstract: An experiment was conducted under “All India Co-ordinated Research Project” (AICRP) for Dry land Agriculture, College of Agriculture, Indore, M.P. during Kharif- 2016 with soybean crop variety JS (95-60) in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications each having twelve treatments including control. There were twelve treatments formulated for the experiment which includes control, 75% RDF (15:45:15 kg NPK ha-1), 100% RDF (20:60:20 kg NPK ha-1) and three different doses (5.0, 7.5 and 10.0 kg ha-1 of nutrient (S, Zn & Mo) by calcium sulphate, zinc oxide and ammonium molybdate loaded NCPC + 75% of RDF. The application of higher dose of nutrient loaded Nano Clay Polymer Composites (NCPC), recorded higher seed yield T9– 75% of RDF + NCPC + S @ 10 kg ha-1 (1478 kg ha-1) followed by treatment T12–75% of RDF + NCPC + Mo @ 10 kg ha-1(1476 kg ha-1) and T6-75% of RDF+NCPC+ Zn @ 10 kg ha-1(1472 kg ha-1). The increased% of seed yield due to above treatments were 10.77 10.63 and 10.36% as compared to 100% of RDF. The application of nutrient loaded NCPC recorded significantly higher leaf area index (LAI), plant dry weight, number of branches plant-1, relative water content% (RWC), leaf water loss (LWL), seed index, root weight density and seed yield of soybean.
