Abstract:

A field experiment to ascertain the “Economics of rice and pea” was conducted during the kharif and rabi seasons of 2016-17 and 2017-18 in the experimental farm of Agronomy at School of Agricultural Sciences and Rural Development (SASRD), Nagaland University, Medziphema Campus. The experiment was laid out in FRBD with two levels of lime viz. L0 - without lime, L1 - Lime @ 2 q ha-1 and four levels of integrated nutrient management viz. N1 - RDF, N2 - RDF (75%) + FYM @ 6 t ha-1, N3 - RDF (75%) + Poultry manure @ 1 t ha-1 and N4 - RDF (75%) + Azospirillum + PSB and replicated thrice. The analysis of the results with regard to economics from the various data revealed that L1 - Lime @ 2 q ha-1 and N2 - RDF (75%) + FYM @ 6 t ha-1 was the best among all the different treatments combination. With regard to gross return ha-1, net return ha-1 and benefit-cost ratio the highest was recorded by treatment combination (i.e. T8) of lime @ 2 q ha-1 + RDF (75%) + FYM @ 6 t ha-1 in rice-pea during the two consecutive years with (Rs 141221.5 and Rs 146962), (Rs 79281.5 and Rs 85022) and (1.28 and 1.37). With regard to rice yield (3537.90 kg ha-1, 3653.83 kg ha-1 ), System productivity (11377.31 kg ha-1, 11752.29 kg ha-1) and rice equivalent yield (7839.41 kg ha-1, 8098.46 kg ha-1 ) the best and highest results was shown by L1 - Lime @ 2 q ha-1 and N2 - RDF (75%) + FYM @ 6 t ha-1 and its treatment combinations (i.e. T8) with 3832.67 kg ha-1, 12400.28 kg ha-1 and 8567.61 kg ha-1 in both the years. Thus with treatment combinations of L1 - Lime @ 2 q ha-1 and N2 - RDF (75%) + FYM @ 6 t ha-1 a higher productivity and profitability of upland rice-pea cropping system can be achieved which can be recommended.
