The current field experiment was carried out at UAS, GKVK, Bangalore to study the effect of micronutrients on nodulation, seed yield, and quality of French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris (L.) cv. Arka suvidha). The experiment consisted of  15 treatment combinations of Boron, Zinc, Molybdenum, Trichoderma viridae, and Rhizobium phaseoli. T1: Control, T2: Boron (20 kg/ha), T3: Zinc (15 kg/ha), T4: Molybdenum (2 kg/ha), T5Rhizobium (10 kg/ha), T6Trichoderma (5 kg/ha) and its combinations.

The results revealed that soil application of Boron @ 20 kg/ha, Zinc @ 15 kg/ha, Molybdenum @ 2 kg/ha, Rhizobium @ 10 kg/ha, and Trichoderma @ 5 kg/ha recorded significantly better seed quality with lesser split hypocotyls.
