Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm of Uttar Banga Krishi Viswavidyalaya, West Bengal, India in winter season of 2013 and 2014 to assess the effect of chemical free bio-accelerated and conventional farming system on growth, yield attributes, yield, nutrient uptake, quality and microbial population of lentil. Results revealed that the growths, yield attributes, yield, N, P and K uptake, quality and microbial population of lentil was recorded higher in chemical free bio-accelerated compared to the conventional farming system. Among the chemical free bio-accelerated farming system pest incidence was found to be lower as compared to the conventional farming system. Lentil produces the average of 0.35/leaf in bio-accelerated farming and 0.63/leaf of aphids was calculated in conventional farming system. However, moisture percentage at maturity stage was higher in conventional farming (74.47%) and bio-accelerated farming (73.60%). The bio-accelerated farming system produces the quality crop restoring the quality of soil health and better grain quality. The better economic returns in bio-accelerated farming also proved its superiority.
