Abstract

The present study was undertaken to explore the possibility ot improving the biometric yield of soybean grains. Treatments involved were S doses (0, 20. 40 and 60 mg kg−1 soil) and Mo @ 0, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 mg kg−1 soil. The study showed that S doses upto 60 mg kg −1 soil caused marked increased in seed yield (5.79 to 6.18 g/plant) and protein content (36.81 to 39.22%), oil (19.38 to 22.63%), minerals (4.59 to 4.81%), tryptophan (1.36 to 1.56 g/16 g N), methionine (O.84 to 1.07 g/16 9 N) cystine (0.32 to 0.45 g/16 g N and cysteine (0.16 to 0.25 g/16 gN). Besides, application of Mo upto 1.00 mg kg−1 soil also caused substantial improvement in seed yield (5.85 to 6.09 g/plant) and biochemical constituents of soybean seeds viz. protein (37.91 to 38.57%), oil (20.56 to 21.67%), minerals (4.59 to 4.88%), tryptophan (1.20 to 1.37 g/16 g N), methionine (0.94 to 1.06 g/16 g N), cystine (0.35 to 0.45 g/16 9 N) and cysteine (0.18 to 0.24 g/16 9 N), accordingly, Interaction effect of Sand Mo application showed marked improvement in seed yield as well as biochemical constituents of nutritional significance.
