ABSTRACT
A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of two micronutrients (Zn and Mo) and vermicompost with their sole as well as all of their possible combinations for two consecutive years with fenugreek seeds variety Rajasthan Methi. Different qualitative parameters like soluble sugar, reducing sugar, starch, soluble protein, total fat was recorded from the leaves from three different growing stages along with the anti-nutritional factor phytic acid. In all the cases the combinational effects of two micronutrients and vermicompost were proved to be the most effective treatment. The projected seed yield were recorded from highest in Zn, Mo and vermicompost complex (V+Zn+Mo) where as vermicompost – molybdenum (V+Mo) combination and Zn – Mo (Zn +Mo) complex produced at per projected seed yield.
