The present study was attempted to find out the influence of various seed hardening cum foliar spray treatments on growth and yield parameters in black gram under dry land condition. The seeds of black gram cv VBN 3 were imposed with hardening treatment with prosopis leaf extract @ 1%, and then they were again given with foliar spray treatments. The above treated seeds along with control were evaluated for their growth, physiological and yield parameters under field condition. The study revealed that, 1%, Prosopis leaf extract hardened seeds along with foliar spray of salicylic acid @ 100 ppm recorded the higher seed yield and other parameters when compared to other treatments and control.
