Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Field Unit, Zonal Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, G.K.V.K., Bengaluru during Kharif, 2012 to study the effect of foliar application of water soluble NPK fertilizer on growth, yield and quality of lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus L.). The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications and eight treatments using a bush type lima bean variety. The results revealed that application of 25:50:25 kg NPK ha-1 + foliar application of WSF (19:19:19 at 0.5%) at branching, 50% flowering and pod development stage (T8) recorded significantly higher plant height (58.0cm), number of primary branches plant-1 (9.3), leaf area (723 cm2 plant-1), number of pods plant-1 (63.97), 100 seed weight (39.3g) and seed yield plant-1 (37.3g) has resulted in higher seed yield of 1408 kg ha-1 over control (1007kg ha-1). Further significantly higher NPK uptake (80.38, 19.5 and 98.05 kg ha-1, respectively) was recorded besides registering higher net returns (Rs. 1,14,398 ha-1) and B:C (4.8) than all other treatments. Among different RAPD markers used, OPG 09 and OPE 16 could be used to identify the bush type lima bean from pole type.
