Abstract:

A two year field experiment on Growth behavior of Pigeonpea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.] in Pigeonpea Based Cropping System in response to Integrated Nutrient Management Practices in Tarai region of Uttarakhand was conducted at Norman E. Borlaug Crop Research Centre, GBPUA&T, Pantnagar, Uttarakhand. Analysis of the two years average data indicated that Pigeonpea + Urd cropping system resulted in Maximum dry matter accumulation (g/plant), Crop growth rate (g/day), Relative growth rate (g/g/day) biological yield and yield of pigeonpea as compared to rest of the cropping system. Application of Recommended Dose of Fertilizer + vermicompost @ 2.5 t/ha found as effective as Recommended Dose of Fertilizer + Farm Yard Manure @ 5.0 t/ha and improved all the growth and yield parameters of pigeonpea than Recommended Dose of Fertilizer alone. Inoculation of seed with PSB attained significantly higher growth and yield parameters than that obtained without inoculation during both the years.


Keywords: Cropping system, Crop growth rate, Relative growth rate, Dry matter accumulation etc.
