Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at research farm, department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Naini Agricultural Institute, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P.) during the Kharif season of 2019 with the objective to evaluate response of different levels of organic and inorganic fertilizers on soil health, growth and yield attributes of cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.)] Cv. Kashi Kanchan. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with nine treatment combinations, i.e. N2V2, N1V2, N2V1, N1V1, N2R2, N1R2, N2R1, N1R1 and control. It was observed that for post-harvest, treatment T9 (100 % RDF + 100 % Rhizobium) was best in terms of growth, yield and economic parameters with maximum plant height 64.40 cm, pods per plant 19.00, pod length 34.15, seeds per pod 10.67 and total yield 164.13 q ha-1. Treatment T9  (100 % RDF + 100 % Rhizobium) was best in terms of economic parameters with maximum gross return of Rs. 1,64,130.00 and net profit was Rs. 1,10,240.00 with benefit-cost ratio 1: 3.05.


Keywords: Bio-fertilizers, Vermicompost, Rhizobium, Integrated nutrient, RDF, Cowpea, Yield attributes, Productivity, etc.
