Abstract


An experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2003-04 to study the effect of phosphorus, PSB and zinc on growth and quality of isabgol. Result revealed that application of phosphorus up to 20 kg P2O5 ha-1, being at par with 30 kg P2O5 ha-1, recorded significantly higher nitrogen uptake by seed and straw and total N uptake, phosphorus concentration in seed and straw, phosphorus uptake by straw, total uptake of phosphorus and zinc uptake by seed and total Zn uptake. The inoculation of seed with PSB significantly enhanced nitrogen concentration in seed, phosphorus concentration in seed and straw, nitrogen, phosphorus and zinc uptake by seed and straw, total uptake of nitrogen phosphorus and zinc concentration in seed uninoculated control. Results revealed that increasing levels of zinc up to 5.0 kg Zn ha-1 significantly increased nitrogen uptake by seed and straw and total N uptake, phosphorus uptake by seed and total uptake of phosphorus, zinc concentration in seed and straw, Zn uptake by seed and straw and total uptake
