A field experiment was conducted during the Zaid season 2016 at the Crop Research farm of Agronomy, Naini Agricultural Institute, SHUATS, Allahabad (U.P.) to Field evaluation of blackgram (Vigna mungo L.) under Agro-climatic zone of Allahabad. The experiment was conducted to find out the effect of different levels of zinc and molybdenum on growth and yield of blackgram (Vigna mungo L.) laid out in RBD with 9 treatment and 3 replications. The treatment consisted of three levels of zinc (0, 5 and

However significantly higher straw yield (4.14 t ha -1 ) in (T 6 ) R.D.F + Zinc 5 kg ha -1 + Molybdenum 1.0 kg ha -1. K e y w o r d s Blackgram, Zinc and molybdenum
