Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on influence of integrated nutrient management on growth, yield and economics of sorghum based legume intercropping systems was conducted in Kharif season at the Farm of Department of Agronomy, Dr. PDKV, Akola. The experiment was conducted in split plot design having eight treatments of intercropping systems in main plots and three treatments of integrated nutrient management in sub plots replicated three times. Results of experiment revealed that sorghum+ pigeonpea intercropping system recorded significantly highest yield attributes of sorghum, sorghum grain equivalent yield, gross monetary returns (GMR), net monetary returns (NMR) and B:C ratio of system over other treatments. Grain, straw and biological yield per hectare of sorghum were highest with sole sorghum which was significantly superior over other treatments. However, Sorghum+ pigeonpea intercropping system and sole sorghum being par recorded maximum total grain productivity over other treatments. Application of 50 % RDF with 5 t/ha FYM and biofertilizers recorded significantly highest yield attributes, grain, straw and biological yield per hectare of sorghum and highest sorghum grain equivalent yield, total grain productivity, gross monetary returns (GMR) and net monetary returns (NMR)of system over other treatments. However, B:C ratio was maximum with application of RDF for respective crops (F1) and application of 50 % RDF with 5 t/ha FYM and biofertilizers (F3) .
