An experiment was conducted on the role of foliar fertilization on spring mung bean var. Meha (IPM 99-125) during spring seasons of 2019-20 and 2020-21 at “AB” Block Farm, BCKV, Nadia under lower gangetic plains of West Bengal, India. Among the different foliar applications, seed yield (1269.04 kg ha-1) and protein (24.79%) were obtained with salicylic acid at 100ppm which is followed by Zinc at 0.2% obtaining the value of 1218.62 kg ha-1 and 24.53% respectively. From the results derived from the two years pooled value, it is concluded that the combination of the prescribed fertilizer dose along with either di-ammonium phosphate at 2% or salicylic acid at 100ppm application enhanced the growth, yield and quality attributes of spring mung bean and also improved the soil nutrient status after harvest in the new alluvial soils of West Bengal, India.
