The present research work in entitled “Effect of integrated nutrient management on yield and quality of dual purpose fodder oat (Avena sativa L.)” was carried out during rabi season 2019-20 at Main Forage Research Station, Anand Agricultural University, Anand. The soil of experimental unit was loamy sand in texture (locally called as “Goradu” soil) with low in organic carbon (0.28%) and available nitrogen (232.87 kg/ha), while medium in phosphorus (35.12 kg/ha) and medium to high in potassium (280.20 kg/ha) with 7.46 pH and EC 0.21 dS/m. The experiment encompassed of ten different INM treatments and it was laid out in randomized block design with four replications. The details of treatments are as follows, T1(100% RDF), T2 (10t FYM + 100% RDF),T3 (Castor Cake + 100% RDF),T4 (Poultry Manure + 100% RDF),T5 (Neem Cake + 100% RDF), T6 (5t FYM + 25% N from FYM + 75% RDF + Bio-fertilizer),T7 (5t FYM + 25% N from Castor Cake+ 75% RDF + Bio-fertilizer),T8 (5t FYM + 25% N from Poultry Manure+ 75% RDF + Bio-fertilizer),T9 (5t FYM + 25% N from Neem Cake+ 75% RDF + Bio-fertilizer) and T10 (50% N from FYM + 50% N from Castor Cake + Bio-fertilizer).The analyzed results of the experiments revealed that, plant population per meter row length at 20 DAS and test weight of oat failed to gave this significant difference due to different INM treatments. The growth and yield attributes of oat crops viz., periodical plant height at 20 and 55 DAS as well as at harvest, number of tillers per meter row length at 55 DAS and at harvest, green forage yield at 55 DAS (first cut), seed yield, straw yield and harvest index were significantly affected by different of treatments INM and recorded significantly higher by application of 5t FYM + 25% N from FYM + 75% RDF + Bio-fertilizer and also it was found superior by obtaining maximum net realization with its BCR.
