During the 2019 kharif season, the current study was conducted at Annamalai University's Experimental Field, Department of Agronomy, to investigate the influence of foliar treatment on blackgram growth and characteristics. Control, Panchagavya @ 2 %, Vermiwash @ 5 %, Fish aminoacid @ 0.5 %, Egg extract @ 0.5 %, Seaweed extract @ 5 %, TNAU pulsewonder @ 1 % @ pre flowering stage, and Humic and Fulvic acid @ 2 % were the eight treatments of foliar sprays used in the study. At 30 and 45 DAS, foliar sprays were administered. The growth characteristics and qualities of blackgram vary dramatically depending on the foliar application treatments of different nutrients, according to studies. Vermiwash @ 5 % had the highest values among the different foliar treatments, which were comparable to panchagavya, followed by TNAU pulse wonder 1 % @ pre flowering stage. Over all other foliar spray treatments, the treatment had the highest plant height (32.17 cm), leaf area index (5.13), dry mater production (2550 kg ha-1), crop growth rate (0.131 g m-2 day-1), number of branches per plant (6.10), and the lowest value reported at control.
