Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 1987 to find out the effect of dates of sowing (March 20, 30 and April 9) and levels of phosphorus (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg P 2O 5/ha) on growth, yield attributes, yield and quality of summer green gram. The dates of sowing and levels of phosphorus significaritly influenced growth, yield attributes, yield and quality of green gram. Sowing of green gram on March 30 produced significantly higher grain yield (10.15 q/h.a) which was 7.09 and 15.17 per cent higher when compared to sowing on April 9 and March 20, respectively. Among different levels of phosphorus, 60 kg P 2O 5/ha gave significantly higher grain yield (10.8 q/ha) than control and 20 kg P 2O 5/ha. which was at par with 40 kg P 2O 5/ha. Sowing of green gram on March 30 and application of 60 kg P 2O 5/ha was found better for the production of maximum grain yield.
