ABSTRACT

An experiment was conducted at the College Agronomy farm, Anand Agricultural University, Anand to study the response of summer green gram (Vigna radiat L.Wiczek) to vermicompost and phosphorus with and without PSB inoculation. Significantly highest seed and stover yield as well as protein content were recorded under the application of vermicompost @ 2t/ha. Application of phosphorus @ 40 kg P2O5/ha recorded significantly higher seed and stover yields over the control and significantly increased the protein content of green gram seed. Inoculation with PSB culture (strain PBA-22) significantly influenced the seed and stover yields as well as protein content of green gram seed.
