A field experiment was conducted during Kharif season 2014 at the Research farm of Soil Science, Allahabad School of Agriculture, laid out in randomized block design, consisted nine treatments and three replications, it was observed that growth and yield of green gram in treatment N20P40K40+ FYM @10 t ha-1 and Rhizobium was maximum. Maximum plant height 50.66 cm, number of leaves plant-1 33.00, number of branches plant-1 4.66 at 60 DAS, number of cluster plant-1 9.33, number of pods plant-1 37.33 and total seed yield 12.10 q ha-1 were found to be significant over all other treatment. Adequate plant nutrient supply holds the key for improving the growth and food grain production of crop.
