Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the rabi season of 2019-2020 to study the “Influence of Integrated Phosphorus Management on the Growth, Yield and Quality of Lentil (Lens culinaris L. Medik.)”. The soil of the experimental field was clay in texture with pH of 5.54 and organic carbon content of 0.8%. The minimum and maximum temperatures recorded during the period under review were 10.3 and 24.5oC with a total rainfall of 246.4 mm and average sunshine of 8.6 hours respectively. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. There were nine treatments which consisted of different sole and combined application of phosphorus, organic manure and Biophos. It was observed that application of 75% RDP + FYM @ 5 t/ha + Biophos @ 20 ml/kg seed (T4) proved significantly superior to all the treatments in terms of all parameters viz nodule number (61.0), fresh and dry weight of nodule (36.0 and 26.0 mg), number of pods per plant (164.30), number of seeds per pod (2.57), seed and stover yield (15.50 and 19.03 q/ha). The highest gross income (Rs. 118500 /ha) and net return (Rs. 82510 /ha) were also associated with the treatment T4. However, T4 and T1 exhibited similar B:C ratio of 3.29. The treatment T4 showed significant enhancement of post-harvest soil nutrient status.
