Phosphorus is a component of complex nucleic acid structure of plants and plays an important role in cell division, energy transformation and development of new tissue. Mung bean is a low altitude crop grown on a good loam soil with well distributed rainfall of 70–90 cm per year. In India, yields of mung bean ranging from 100 to 200 kg/ha have been reported. In the current study we have investigated the effect of phosphorus on growth, nodulation and yield of Green gram (Vigna radiata L.) in randomized block design with nine treatments replicated thrice. The results revealed that application of Single super phosphate (SSP) + phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) seed inoculation produced significantly higher plant height. Our findings demonstrate that phosphorus plays important role in growth, nodulation of Vigna radiata L.

Key words: Phosphorus, SSP, URP, PSB, Vigna radiata
