Abstract:

Field experimentation was conducted during kharif season of 2019 at Research Farm, College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, India to evaluate the “Resource conservation technology in pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) through tillage and mulching”. Among the various treatments, the treatment (L1M3) conventional tillage with weed biomass mulch recorded significantly highest number of branches, highest number of pods per plant and highest yield. Likewise, gross return (₹153416/ha) and net return (₹110621/ha) was found best in (L1M3) conventional tillage with weed biomass mulch and benefit cost ratio (2.8) were recorded significantly higher in (L3M3) zero tillage along with weed biomass mulch whereas the lowest gross return (₹ 74421/ha) recorded in (L3M4) receiving zero tillage with zero mulch, lowest net return (₹ 42601/ha) and benefit cost ratio (1.2) were obtained from the treatment (L3M2) receiving zero tillage with rice straw mulch. Hence best natural resource conservation was observed in L3M3 treatment.
