An experiment was conducted in the Glass house of the Department of Crop Physiology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore during Rabi, 2018 in pot culture to investigate the “Morpho-physiological Studies on response of Blackgram (Vigna mungo L.) under soil Water Deficit amended with Hydrogel”. The experimental design was completely randomized design with eight treatments and three replications. The result revealed that significant increase in plant height, number of branches, leaf area, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod and seed yield per plant with application of hydrogel (cross linked polyacrylic acid homopolymer ) of 0.6g per kg soil when compared to control under 50% field capacity. All morphological and yield characters increased significantly with increase in hydrogel concentration of 0.6g per kg of soil in comparison with control under 50% field capacity.
Key words: Morphological characters, Blackgram, Hydrogel, Moisture stress.
