The field experiment were undertaken to study the effect of nitrogen in combination with foliar spray of bioregulators and micronutrients on growth and productivity of CO5 black gram. Photosynthetic pigments and foliage soluble protein content were estimated at different phenological phases of black gram. Seed yield were assessed at the time of harvest. Significant increase in the CGR (Crop Growth Rate) and NAR (Net Assimilation Rate) due to basal application of nitrogen 25 kg per hectare with foliar spray of urea 2% and 0.1 ppm brassinolide. The NA-ase and IAA-oxidase enzymes were also greatly altered by the basal application of nitrogen 25 kg per hectare with foliar spray of urea 2% and 0.1ppm brassinolide treatment.
