Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at College of Agriculture and Research Station, IGKV, Bemetara (Chhattisgarh) to evaluate the feasibility and possibility of transplanted pigeonpea under varying dates of planting during kharif season of 2015. An experiment comprising of seven treatments including one farmers practice of direct seeding on 14th July (T1) and six dates of transplanting viz., 14 th July (T2) 24 th July (T3), 03rd August (T4), 13th August (T5), 23rd August (T6) and 2nd September (T7) laid out in randomized complete block design with three replication. Results revealed that all the growth and yield attributes of pigeonpea influenced significantly due to varying dates of planting. Crop planted on 14th July resulted in taller plants with a maximum height of 183.07 cm coupled with greater number of branches (33.70 plant-1), nodule counts (52.11 plant-1), dry matter accumulation (158.10 g plant-1) and LAI. Superior yield attributes such as pods (486.83 plant-1), as well as total seeds (849.47 plant-1) were also recorded from early transplanted crop i.e. 14th July among all the dates of transplanting as well as with direct seeded pigeonpea. The better growth and yield attributes of pigeonpea planted on 14th July resulted in highest grain (2268.52 kg ha-1) and stover (9754.63 kg ha-1) yields, as well as net returns (89187 ha-1) and B:C ratio (3.73) from transplanted pigeonpea compared to rest of treatments.
