A field experiment was carried out during late Kharif-2019 at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station (ZAHRS), Babbur farm, Hiriyur, to study the effect of different levels of phosphorous and foliar spray of pulse magic on soybean under Central Dry Zone of Karnataka. Experimental design adopted was RCBD with three replications and nine treatments consisting of different levels of phosphorous viz., 75 % and 100 % RDP and foliar application of pulse magic (0.5 %, 1 % and 1.5 %) with first spray during 50 per cent flowering stage and second spray during 15 days after the first spray along with recommended dose of fertilizers. Pulse magic contained nitrogen 10 per cent, phosphorus 40 per cent, micronutrients 03 per cent and PGR 20 ppm. The results revealed that, basal dose of 100 % RDF along with foliar spray of pulse magic at 1.5 % recorded significantly higher plant height (52.56 cm), number of branches plant-1 (10.97), number of leaves plant-1 (7.40), total dry matter production (50.47 g plant-1), number of pods plant-1 (51.34), test weight (13.88 g), seed yield (2476.34 kg ha-1) and haulm yield (3986.37 kg ha-1) over control.
