Abstract:

A study was conducted during kharif season 2016-17 to study the “Response of Neem cake Rhizobium and Inorganic Fertilizer on Soil Health Growth and Yield of Green gram (Vigna radiata L.) var. Samrat” on crop research farm department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Naini Agricultural Institute, SHUATS, Allahabad. The design applied for statistical analysis was carried out with 3x2x2 factorial randomized block design having three factors with three levels of NPK @ 0, 50, and 100 % ha-1, two level of Neem cake and Rhizobium @ 0, 100% respectively. The best treatment was T11 –I2+N1+R1 (@ 100%N P K ha-1+ 100% Neem cake and Rhizobium) that showed the significant increase on enrichment of soil fertility status. The textural classes’ names are given to soils based upon the relative proportion of each of the three soil separates – sand, silt and clay. Sandy loam in which sand is 61.21%, silt 25.36% and clay 13.46%. The combination of N P K, Neem cake and Rhizobium was show resulted in a slight decrease in particle density (2.33 Mgm-3), bulk density (1.11Mgm-3), pH 6.97 and EC 0.28 dSm-1 in post-harvest soil. The maximum increased values were recorded of O.C (0.74 %), pore space (59.58%), water holding capacity (56.62%) and available macro nutrient as Nitrogen (314.84 kg ha-1), Phosphorus (33.45 kg ha-1) and Potassium (181.05kg ha-1) with treatment combination T11- [I2+ N1+ R1 (@ 100% N P K ha-1 + 100% Neem cake and Rhizobium]. The maximum cost benefit ratio was recorded 1:2.73 and maximum net return Rs. 58651 per hectare and maximum yield 13.58q ha-1 in treatment combination T11 –[I2+N1+R1@ 100% N P K ha-1+ 100% Neem cake and Rhizobium].


Keywords: Soil nutrients, Yield attributes, N P&K, Neem cake, Rhizobium and Green gram.
