Jahid Ahmad, Murali K, Ali Ahmad, Amanullah Barak, MK Wasifhy, Ashuqullah Atif

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif seasons of 2017 at Zonal Agricultural Research Station (ZARS), in Gandhi Krishi Vigyan Kendra (GKVK), University of Agricultural Science (UAS), Bengaluru on red sandy clay loam soil which was medium in available NPK, to evaluate the effect of water soluble fertilizers on growth attributes of soybean crop. The experiment was laid out in a RCBD design with three replications and 10 treatments. Water-soluble fertilizers (WSF) (NPK: 19: 19: 19) was used at different growth stages with 1.5 %, 2% and 2.5% concentration. Significantly higher growth parameters like plant height (69.57 cm), number of branches (6.50), number of leaves plant-1 (27.53), leaf area plant-1 (1616.7 cm2), leaf area index (5.39) and dry matter accumulation plant-1 (21.30 g) were obtained with the treatment recommended fertilizers dose (RDF) + spraying of water-soluble fertilizer at 2.5 % at flowering + pod formation stage at 60 DAS, compared to other treatments.
