Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on clay soil (Vertic ustochrepts) of Soil and Water Management Farm of Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during rabi season of 2015-16 on “Effect of land configuration, irrigation and INM on growth and yield of Indian bean (var. GNIB -21)”. In all, twelve treatment combinations consisting of two levels each of land configuration (L1: Raised bed and L2: Flatbed), irrigation ( I1: 0.4 and I2: 0.6 IW/CPE ratio) and three levels of integrated nutrient management (F1= 100% RDF, F2= 75% RDF + 5t BC/ha + bio fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB) and F3= 50% RDF + 5t BC/ha + bio fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB) ) were tried in split plot design with three replications. The results revealed that planting methods, irrigation schedules and INM significantly influenced the growth, yield and water use efficiency of Indian bean. Raised bed method of sowing was found significantly superior over flatbed sowing with higher values of plant height (44 cm), number of branches per plant (11.12), number of pods per plant (23.12), seed yield (954 kg/ha), stover yield (3779 kg/ha) and water use efficiency (3.51 kg/ha.mm). Irrigation schedules at 0.6 IW/CPE ratio recorded significantly higher values of plant height (43.78 cm), number of branches per plant (11.23), number of pods per plant (23.15) in comparison to 0.4 IW/CPE ratio, while seed and stover yield was not affected due to irrigation scheduling. In case of INM F2 treatment recorded significantly higher plant height (44 cm), number of branches per plant (11.48), number of pods per plant (23.20), seed yield (966 kg/ha), stover yield (3771 kg/ha) and water use efficiency (3.45 kg/ha.mm) as compared to rest of the INM levels.
