Cite article:- Purbey* S.K., Sen N.L. (2023). EFFECT OF BIOINOCULANTS AND BIOREGULATORS ON YIELD AND NUTRIENT UPTAKE BY FENUGREEK (TRIGONELLA FOENUM-GRAECUM L.). Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 41(2): 154 - 156. doi: .
A field experiments were conducted during rabi season of 2001-02 and 2002-03 to study the effect of bioinoculants and bioregulators on yield, nutrient content and uptake by fenugreek crop.The study revealed that the dual inoculation of seeds with Rhizobium + phosphate solubilizing bacteria (Bacillus megatherium var. phosphaticum) resulted in significant increase in yield, N and P content and NPK uptake by seed and straw over other treatments. However, inoculation with Rhizobium or PSB alone were found at par. Foliar application of bioregulators viz., GA3, NAA and brassinosteriod had significant effect on yield, nutrient content and uptake by the crop. However, 20 ppm NAA spray produced mean maximum of 17.60 and 47.05 qha-1 seed and straw yield, respectively. N and P content and uptake by fenugreek crop were the highest under 20 ppm NAA treatment which was closely followed by 10 ppm NAA treatment.
