Pulses are important food crop in India. The legumes are more useful because, it is the main source of amino acid as well as protein. They are important for sustainable agriculture as they improve physical, chemical and biological properties of soil and function as mini nitrogen factory. The current study was aimed to evaluate the growth and yield characters of greengram (vigna radiata). Field experiment was conducted at the Experimental Farm, Department of Agronomy, Faculty of Agriculture, Annamalai University, Annamalai Nagar to study the effect of foliar application of chelated nutrient on the growth and yield characters of irrigated greengram during June to August 2016. Fourteen treatments combinations were studied in RBD with three replication. The growth and yield characters of greengram viz. , plant height, leaf area index, dry matter production, nodulation count, yield attributes and yield were favourably influenced by foliar application of 0.2 % chelated nutrient + 2 % DAP at flowering and pod formation stages (T11). The control (T1) recorded the lowest values of growth and yield components. Based on the results of field experiment, it may be concluded that the foliar application of 0.2 % chelated nutrient +2 % DAP at flowering and pod formation stages is efficient nutrient management practice for maximizing the growth and yield of irrigated greengram.
