Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 1998 and 1999 to study the effect of different Bradyrhizobium strains inoculation on protein and yield attributes of green gram under mid-hill conditions of Himachal Pradesh, The significantly maximum test weight (g), biological yield (q/ha), grain yield (q/ha) and harvest index (%) was recorded by inoculation with local isolate of Bradyrhizobium, followed by R1, R3 and lowest value of these characters were observed in control. The protein content in seed was influenced by inoculation treatment and significantly highest protein content was noticed after R1 inoculation as compared to other strains and control where lowest protein content was recorded. None of the strain could influence the protein content in straw.
