A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2012 and 2013 at AEEC, Lingsugur, UAS, Raichur. Nine treatments were laid out in randomised design with three replications. Among different sources of nutrients, foliar spray of Panchagavya (5 %) at flower initiation recorded significantly higher grain yield of greengram compared to other treatments however, it was at par with foliar of spray of 19:19:19 (1%) in both year and as well in pooled analysis. The significantly lower grain yield was recorded in control plot in both the years.
