Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted at Agricultural College and Research Institute, Killikulam (TNAU) during thaipattam (February 2016 – April 2016) to evaluate the effect of sowing methods and foliar nutrition for maximizing the productivity of rice fallow blackgram under combine harvested rice field. The experiment was laid out in Randomized block design and replicated thrice with twelve treatments. The treatments involving broadcasting and dibbling methods of sowing and its combination with foliar application of nutrients and growth regulators sprayed on 30 and 45 DAS. Among the treatments, dibbling method of sowing along with foliar spray of TNAU pulse wonder 1.125% twice at 30 and 45 DAS recorded significantly higher yield attributes viz., number of pod cluster plant-1, number of pods cluster-1, number of seeds pod-1, pod length and seed test weight and finally the grain yield of 692 kg ha-1. It was followed by dibbling method of sowing along with foliar spray of polyfeed 1% + NAA 40 ppm registered 642 kg ha-1. The grain yield increases with these two treatments were 54 % and 42 % over the adoption of dibbling method of sowing without any foliar nutrition (449 kg ha-1).
