Abstract :

The field experiment was conducted during the summer season of the year 2013 at College Farm, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, Gujarat (India). The experimental soil was clay in texture, low in available nitrogen, medium in available phosphorus, medium in available sulphur and slightly alkaline in reaction. Total twelve treatment combinations consisting of three levels of inorganic fertilizer (R1: 50 per cent RDF, R2: 75 per cent RDF and R3: 100 per cent RDF i.e. 20-40-00 kg NPK/ha), two sources of organic manure (O1:FYM @ 5t/ha and O2:Biocompost @ 5t/ha) and two treatments of biofertilizers (B1: no seed inoculation, B2:rhizobium + Phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) seed inoculation) were evaluated in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The results revealed that application of 100 % RDF (20-40-00 kg/ha NPK) + biocompost (5 t/ha) + dual inoculation of rhizobium and PSB is the best nutrient management option for harvesting economic seed yield of green gram.
