Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during summer season of 2017 at the college farm, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari to study the “Production potential of green gram [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] varieties with different nutrient management under south Gujarat condition”. The soil of the experimental field was clayey in texture having medium to poor drainage, low in available nitrogen  and organic carbon, medium in available phosphorus, potassium and sulphur. Total eighteen treatment combinations consisting of three varieties viz., NKM-15-12 (V1), GAM-5 (V2) and Meha (V3) and six levels of nutrient management practices viz., T1 (75% RDF), T2 (100% RDF), T3 (75% RDF + 10 kg Sulphur/ha), T4 (75% RDF + 20 kg Sulphur/ha), T5 (100% RDF + 10 kg Sulphur/ha) and T6 (100% RDF + 20 kg Sulphur/ha) were tested in factorial randomized block design with three replications. Variety NKM-15-12 (GM-6) recorded significantly higher value of plant height at 60 DAS and at harvest, number of seeds per pod, length of pod and test weight as compared to variety GA-5, Varieties Meha and GAM-5 being at par but registered remarkably higher number of pods per plant over NKM-15-12. Significantly the higher seed (1186 kg/ha), haulm (2430 kg/ha) and protein yield (226.20 kg/ha) of greengram were produced under the variety NKM-15-12 as compared to other varieties, respectively. Numerically higher protein content of greengram was registered under the variety Meha. The maximum gross realization of Rs 77264/ha, net realization of Rs 52021/ha and the BCR value of 3.06 was also observed under the variety NKM-15-12. Plant height at harvest, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod and test weight were found to be remarkably higher under the application of 100% RDF along with 20 kg S/ha as compared to 75% RDF. Significantly the highest seed (1184 kg/ha), haulm (2394 kg/ha) and protein yield (219.30 kg/ha) of greengram were produced due to the application of same treatment of 100% RDF along with 20 kg S/ha over control, which was at par with 100% RDF with 10 kg S/ha and 75% RDF with 20 kg S/ha. The numerically higher protein content was found under the same treatment. The maximum gross realization of Rs 77028 ha-1, net realization of Rs 49381 ha-1 and BCR value of 2.79 were secured under the application of 100% RDF along with 20 kg S/ha.
