Crop productivity in greengram being low in North eastern transitional zone of Karnataka a field experiment was conducted during kharif 2012 and 2013 at Agricultural Research Station, Bidar, UAS, Raichur. Among different sources of nutrients, foliar spray of 19:19:19 (1 %) followed by panchagavya (5 %) at flower initiation stage recorded significantly higher grain yield (1121 and 1105 kg ha-1, respectively) of greengram compared to other treatments. Control treatment recorded the lowest yield (734s kg ha-1) among all. Foliar spray of 19:19:19 also recorded higher net returns (Rs. 35828/-) and benefit cost ratio (5.0).
