Abstract

Six fertilizer treatments comprising three levels of nitrogen (20, 40, 60 kg/hal and two levels of phosphorus (40, 60 kg p2p5/ha) with a control were tested in randomized block design during wet season of 1999 and 2000 on greengram. The results revealed that 20 kg N + 60 kg P2O5/ha recorded maximum dry matter production, Nand P uptake. higher seed and haulm yield. Increasing the levels of nitrogen from 20 to 60 kg/ha did not show any benefit. In general, seeds removed more nitrogen and phosphorus than haulms in both the years.
