The new research work was conducted at Instructional Cum Research Farm, College of Agriculture, Department of Agronomy, IGKV, Raipur during rabi season of 2019-20. The experiment was assessed with three replication in Randomized Block Design. The experiment consist of 11 different treatments. Fieldpea as a test crop and variety was Indira matar-1. Recommended dose of nitrogen, potassium and sulphur @ 20 kg ha-1 and Rhizobium culture applied common to all treatments. The result revealed that use of recommended dose of phosphorus @ 50 kg ha-1 and nutrient mobilizer (LNm 43a) was found to be effective and significantly increase the growth and yield attributes of fieldpea rest of the treatments in terms of plant height (cm), number of branches plant-1, number of leaves plant-1 and number of pods plant-1. Significantly, higher seed yield (1700 kg ha-1) and stover yield (3950 kg ha-1) were also obtained. Inoculation of phosphate and zinc solubilizing microbes in fieldpea have proven to be the best treatment for achieving the maximum gross realization (Rs 80450 ha-1), net realization (Rs 58234 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (3.62) under RDP and nutrient mobilizers (LNm 43a). Owing to improved growth efficiency and yield attributes, yield increases and result in higher economic returns considered as cost effective integration of RDP and microbes.
