Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of the year 2018 on loamy sand soil at College Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand to evaluate the effect of chemical fertilizer, organic manure (Castor cake, Vermicompost and FYM) and bio-fertilizers (Rhizobium and PSB) on growth and yield of summer cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp).Significantly higher growth attributes (plant height (cm) and higher number of branchesplant-1)was recorded under application of recommended dose of chemical fertilizer 20-40-00 NPK kg ha-1 and remained at par with application of 4 t FYM along with 5 ml PSB kg-1 seed. Application of recommended dose of chemical fertilizer 20-40-00 NPK kg ha-1 recorded significantly higher yield attributes (numbers of pod plant-1 and numbers of seeds pod-1) and seed and stover yield (kg ha-1) over rest of the treatments. However, it was at par with application of 4 t FYM along with 5 ml PSB kg-1 seed.
