Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during Kharif (july-october) season 2016-17 to study “Response of Integrated Nutrient Management on Soil Properties, Growth and Yield of Cluster bean (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba L.) Cv. Pusa Sadabahar” on central research farm of Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences Allahabad. The soil of experimental area falls in order Inceptisol and soil texture was sandy loam (sand % 62.25, silt % 24.52 and clay % 13.23). The design applied for statistical analysis was carried out with 3×2×2 factorial randomized block design having three factors with three levels of NPK @ 0, 50, and 100 % ha-1, two levels of FYM @ 0 and 100% ha-1and two level of rhizobium @ 0 and 100% respectively. The best treatment was T11 – [L2 F1 Z1] (@ 100% NPK ha-1 + 100% FYM ha-1 + 100% rhizobium) showed the significant increase on enrichment of soil fertility status. NPK, FYM and rhizobium in combination resulted in a slight decrease in pH 6.89, EC 0.225 dS m-1. In post soil of NPK,FYM and rhizobium fertilizers observations were resulted in significant increase in organic carbon 0.88 %, particle density 2.66 Mg m-3, bulk density 1.05 Mg m-3 and available N 334.12 kg ha-1, available P 34.76 kg ha-1, available K 214.74 kg ha-1. Significant increase in case of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium in treatment combination T11 –[L2F1 Z1] (@ 100% NPK ha-1 + @ 100% FYM ha-1 + @ 100% rhizobium). The maximum cost benefit ratio was recorded 1:2.85 in treatment combination [T11 – L2 F1 Z1] (@ 100% NPK ha-1 + 0% FYM ha-1 + 100% rhizobium) and maximum net return (100438 ha-1) and highest pod yield (77.22 q ha-1) in treatment combination [T11 – L2 F1 Z1] (@ 100% NPK ha-1 + 100% FYM ha-1 + 100% rhizobium).
