Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at the Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Farm, Dhaka 1207, during the kharif season of 2014 to study the effects of Phosphorus and Zinc on the growth and yield of Mungbean (BARI Mug 6). Four levels of phosphorus (P) (0, 15, 20 and 25 kg P ha-1) and three levels of zinc (Zn) (0, 1.5 and 3 kg Zn ha-1) were used in the study. The results revealed that seed and stover yield of mungbean increased with increasing levels of phosphorus and zinc up to certain level. Incase of P the maximum significant seed yield (1.5 t ha-1) and stover yield (2.47 t ha-1) were obtained with the treatment P3 (25 kg P ha-1) and the minimum significant seed yield (1.11 t ha-1) and stover yield (2.06 t ha-1) were obtained with the treatment P0 (0 kg P ha-1). Incase of Zn the maximum significant seed yield (1.45 t ha-1) and stover yield (2.42 t ha-1) were obtained with the treatment Zn2 (3 kg Zn ha-1) and the minimum significant seed yield (1.27 t ha-1) and stover yield (2.21 t ha-1) were obtained with the treatment Zn0 (0 kg Zn ha-1). The maximum significant plant height (52.05 cm), number of branch plant-1 (2.87), seed yield (1.68 t ha-1), yield contributing factors like number of pods plant-1 (20.86), number of seeds pod-1 (12.65) and weight of 1000-seeds (45.11 g) were obtained with the treatment combination P2Zn 2 (20 kg P ha-1 + 3 kg Zn ha-1).
