Abstract: The experiment was conducted at Anbil Dharma lingam Agricultural College and Research Institute, Trichy during summer season of 2018-19 to study the effect of foliar nutrition on the productivity of green gram. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design and replicated thrice with eight treatments comprising of T1- Control + T2- Foliar spray of DAP 2% + T3- Foliar spray of KCl 2% + T4- Foliar spray of Pulse wonder @ 2 kg ac-1 + T5- Foliar spray of Panchakavya 5% + T6- Foliar spray of Cow urine 5% + T7- Foliar spray of Vermiwash 5% + T8 – Foliar spray of PPFM 2%. The yield attributes and yield were recorded and worked out the economic analysis using BCR. The results revealed that the foliar application of TNAU Pulse wonder @ 2 kg ac-1 significantly recorded the highest yield attributes viz., no. of pods/plant, no. of seeds/pod, test weight and grain yield of 839 kg ha-1 Which is on par with Panchakavya 5% which registered 834 kg ha-1. From the above results, it has been concluded that TNAU Pulse wonder @ 2 kg ac-1 to enhance the productivity in green gram with the B: C ratio of 2.34.
