Pisum sativum L. is one of the important and nutritious vegetable crops consumed in India. It has been postulated that the effect of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and panchagavya has an effect on the growth of a pea. Hence, the study was designed to test the ability of AgNPs and panchagavya on the morphological and biochemical status of the pea plant. The morphological parameters like shoot and root length, number of leaves per plant, leaf surface area, relative water content percentage and biochemical contents like protein, carbohydrate and total chlorophyll in leaf samples are observed. Firstly the project was focused on the synthesis of AgNPs and panchagavya. AgNPs were synthesized from Azadirachta indica and characterized by a UV-Vis spectrophotometer which shows the highest peak at 439 nm. In SEM analysis, the crystallized size of AgNPs has observed in the range of 51.54 nm to 82.5 nm, these values confirm that nanoparticles are successfully synthesized. Panchagavya was synthesized from the five products of desi cow. As the treatments of AgNPs and panchagavya provided there were changes observed in morphological and biochemical level. After 45 days of seedlings, observations were taken, there was an increase in the morphological and biochemical parameters in the pea plant. Hence, the present study concludes that the silver nanoparticles and panchagavya show more effective results as compared to the control on the morphological and biochemical content of pea.
