Biochemical study on Phaseolus mungo L.


Dr. Bala Prasad Mishra

Black gram is one of the less‐known legumes, mainly grown and consumed in India, Thailand, and other tropical parts of the world. A field experiment was conducted during rainy seasons of 2014 and 2015 to study the Biochemical study on Phaseolus mungo L. The nutrient contents in grain and straw viz., N, P, K and S deviated significantly due to sulphur levels and bio fertilizers as well as their interactions. The highest sulphur level (60 kg/ha) and dual bio fertilizers (Rhizobium + PSB) resulted in almost significantly higher N, P, K and S contents and their uptake of black gram. The highest uptake of nutrients by black gram producing a total biomass up to 31.36 q/ha with highest S level was 99.55 kg N, 11.696 kg P, 52.06 kg K and 5.413 kg S/ha. Similarly, under dual bio fertilizers, the corresponding uptake values were 101.63 kg N, 10.626 kg P, 53.19 kg K and 5.568 kg S/ha. Biological nitrogen fixation by symbiotic bacteria in root-nodule of legume plants, black gram is one of them, is quantitatively one of the most important ways in which atmospheric nitrogen enters the biosphere.
