Abstract:

Organic agriculture is a low cost and effective way to help many of the world’s poorest people to have good levels of nutrition and a better quality of life. Present experiment was carried out at BCKV, Kalyani, Nadia, West Bengal during the Kharif season of 2013 and 2014 with the objective to study the effect of organic nutrient and plant protection management practices on soil physical properties, economics and to frame the energy budgeting of organic rice cultivation. Based on the economics, energy productivity and soil physical properties it has been concluded that organic package @ 60 kg N equivalent containing Sesbania green manuring + vermicompost + mustard cake each @ 20 kg N equivalent along with combination of seed treatment with brahmastra followed by foliar spray of brahmastra (at 15, 30, 45, 60, 75 DAT) and Trichoderma harzianum soil mixture (1:40) application@ 130 kg ha-1 was found highly profitable by gaining the highest gross returns (Rs. 64973.85), net returns (Rs. 32501.35), B:C ratio (2.00), highest total output energy (126537.75 MJ ha-1) and net energy gain (120994.43 MJ ha-1).
