Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif season 2018 to evaluate the effect of nitrogen levels and scheduling on growth and yield of pigeon pea in integrated approach. The area situated at a latitude of 29o 40′ North and longitude of 77o 42′ East with an elevation of 237 m above mean sea level. Ten treatments consisting application of different level of nitrogen and vermicompost were tested in randomized block design with three replications. The data on growth, yield and its contributing traits were estimated as per the standard procedure. Growth parameters were comparatively better in the treatments where 40 kg N in two splits was applied. The highest grain yield and harvest index recorded in T7 was found statistically at similar to the treatments T6, T9, T10 and significantly higher than the rest of the treatments. The application of N, P over control resulted approximately 25 percent improvement in grain yield. Integrated nutrient management practices are essential in realizing the higher productivity of pigeon pea and reducing cost of production on sustainable basis.
