Abstract: The field experiment was conducted at Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Latur during kharif, 2011 to study the effect of fertilizer levels and micronutrients on growth, yield and quality of soybean. Application of 100 per cent RDF (F3) recorded significantly higher growth, yield and quality contributing characters followed by application of 75 per cent RDF (F2) and 50 per cent RDF (F1).Application of Zinc (M3) recorded significantly higher growth, yield, and quality contributing characters followed by Boron (M1) and Fe (M2). Application of 100 per cent RDF produced significantly higher seed yield (2972 kg ha-1) than 50 per cent RDF (1986 kg ha-1) and 75 per cent RDF (2527 kg ha-1) and Zn application @ 10 kg ha-1 (2668 kg ha-1) produced significantly higher seed yield than Fe @ 10 kg ha-1 (2290 kg ha-1) but was found to be at par with B @ 2 kg ha-1. In case of oil yield, 100 per cent RDF (608 kg ha-1) recorded significantly higher oil yield than other treatments. In case of micronutrients Zn application @ 10 kg ha-1 recorded significantly higher oil yield (556 kg ha-1) than Fe application @ 10 kg ha-1 (475kg ha-1), but it was at par with the B application @ 2 kg ha-1 (513 kg ha-1).
