Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study “Effect of irrigation levels and cropping systems on quality parameters and economics of pigeonpe” at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Kalaburagi, during kharif 2018-19. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three main factors of irrigation levels and four sub factors of cropping systems, replicated thrice revealed that significantly higher nitrogen uptake (161.04 kg ha-1) phosphorus uptake (28.26 kg ha-1), potassium uptake (85.29 kg ha-1), protein yield (590.73 kg ha-1), grain yield (1575 kg ha-1) and economics viz., gross returns (Rs. 2,26,245 ha-1), net returns (Rs.173435 ha-1) and BC ratio (4.29) with 75 % CPE ratio compared to50 % and 100 % CPE but water use efficiency (5.59 Kg ha-1 mm-1) of pigenopea highest in 50 % CPE compared to 75 % CPE and 100 % CPE. Among the cropping system, sole pigeonpea recorded significantly higher nitrogen uptake (176.72 kg ha-1), phosphorus uptake (33.56 kg ha-1), potassium uptake (89.70 kg ha-1), protein yield (635.37 kg ha-1), WUE (4.66 Kg ha-1 mm-1) and grain yield (1732 kg ha-1) as compared to intercropped pigeonpea. While, pigeonpea + greengram (1:3) intercropping system recorded significantly higher gross returns (Rs. 252400 ha-1), net returns (Rs. 196590 ha-1) and BC ratio (4.52) as compared to sole pigeonpea.
