Impact of fluoride on yield attribute of Pisum sativum

P. K. Mishra*, Ranjana Kumar


High protein, low fat and various health promoting phytochemicals make Pisum sativum (Pea) an important pulse/vegetable. Its production however is below requirement in our country. Pollution further adversely affects its output. In present study, it was convincingly observed that fluoride lead to lower pod setting as well as seeds per pod. Dry mass of seeds also reduced significantly with increase in dose of fluoride.
