Abstract

An experiment was laid out with two levels of PSB inoculation (PSB @ 100 g/l and 200 g/l), three levels of boron (Boron @ 0.2%, 0.4% and 0.6%) and their six interactions and one control. There were total twelve treatment combinations. Observations were recorded on the different aspect of the plant growth and flowering characters. Application of PSB and boron gave the better performance in comparison to control, while best were recorded under the combined application of PSB inoculation and boron at higher doses (PSB @ 200 g/l + Boron @ 0.6%).
