Response of soybean glycine max l. merr. to phosphorus potassium and molybdenum applications



Response of soybean glycine max l. merr. to phosphorus potassium and molybdenum applications



Journal of Agricultural Science 112(1): 131-136



Field experiments during the wet seasons of 1981-5 determined the response of soya bean to the application of P, K and Mo at four locations in the Nigerian savanna. Soya bean was grown at factorial combinations of four rates of P (0, 13.2, 26.4 and 39.6 kg P/ha)and two rates of K (0 or 41.5 kg K/ha) in 1981, but in subsequent years two or three rates of Mo (0, 0.5 or 1.0 kg ammonium molybdate/ha) were included in a randomized complete block design with three replications at all locations. Significant yield increases due to the application of P were recorded in 10 out of 11 trials. Yield increases due to 13.2 or 26.4 kg P/ha were from 29 to 210% over the control. The effects of K and Mo application were not significant in 10 out of 11 trials and eight out of nine trials, respectively. Whereas P .times. Mo interaction effects were significant in three trials only, highest yields were recorded due to application of 26.4 or 39.6 kg P/ha in combination with 0.5 kg ammonium molybdate/ha. Application of P increased the percentage of P in soya-bean leaves significantly and a range of 0.275-0.330% P appears to be the critical nutrient range of P in soya-bean leaves at full bloom stage. Application of K had no effect on K concentration in leaves.
