India is the world’s top producer and consumer of pulses. The area under pulse crop is increasing continuously but productivity is decreasing over years. Reduced production is caused by a lack of care, an uneven fertilizer application and the emergence of physiological problems, particularly inefficient assimilate partitioning, poor pod development, excessive flower abscission due to the nutrient stress. Foliar nutrition is an efficient way of supplementing the available plant nutrients when they lack in the soil. Organic fertilizers are mainly used to stimulate growth by providing proper nutrients at the right dose and proper stage of the crop growth. Liquid organic manures are the source of macronutrients, necessary micronutrients, required amino acids, growth promoting factors and certain beneficial microorganisms. There is an opportunity for increasing pulse yield and quality by raising soil fertility and productivity by increased ability of conservation of soil organic carbon and soil moisture.
