Abstract :

ABSTRACT An experiment was conducted at Avinashilingam Institute for Home Science and Higher Education for Women, Tamil Nadu (India) to analyse the conjugative effect of composted coirpith, composted pressmud, farmyard manure and NPK on leghaemoglobin content in the nodules of black gram and cluster bean. The experiment consisting of twelve treatments (T1- Control,T2- Composted coirpith (12.5t ha -1, T3- Composted pressmud (12.5t ha-1), T4- Farmyard manure (12.5t ha-1), T5- NPK (100%), T6- Composted coirpith (12.5t ha-1) + 50% NPK, T7- Composted pressmud (12.5t ha-1) + 50% NPK, T8- Farmyard manure (12.5t ha-1) + 50% NPK, T9- Composted coirpith (12.5t ha-1) + 25% NPK, T10- Composted pressmud (12.5t ha-1) + 25% NPK, T11- Farmyard manure (12.5t ha-1) + 25 % NPK, T12- Composted coirpith (6.5t ha-1) + Composted pressmud (6.5t ha-1) + Farmyard manure (6.5t ha-1) was laid in a pot having 7kg soil (per pot) with three replications. There was a significant increase in leghaemoglobin content in nodules of both the crops in T12 (composted coirpith (6.5t ha-1) + composted pressmud (6.5t ha-1) + farmyard manure (6.5t ha-1)) followed by T9 (composted coirpith (12.5t ha-1)+ 25% NPK) when compared to the control. From the present investigation it was concluded that composted coirpith, composted pressmud, farmyard manure and NPK promote the leghaemoglobin content in the nodules of black gram and cluster bean. Keywords: Composted coirpith, Composted pressmud, Farmyard manure, Leghaemoglobin, NPK.
