Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on moth bean during kharif, 2016 at Agronomy Farm, College of Agriculture, Bikaner. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. The treatments consisted of four varieties namely, RMO 40, RMO 225, RMO 435 and RMO 257 and four levels of phosphorus viz., 20, 40, 60 and 80 P2O5 ha-1. Variety RMO 257 recorded seed yield of 827 kg ha-1 and established its significant superiority over RMO 225 and RMO 435 in terms this respect over RMO 225 and RMO 435 by a margin of 21.6 and 30.8 per cent, respectively, nevertheless, variety RMO 40 was statistically at par with RMO 257, suggesting it to be an alternative variety for the region to be grown, as both the varieties being at par with each other, also recorded significantly higher net returns as compared to RMO 225 and RMO 435. Application of 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 significantly increased the seed yield by a margin of 39.7 and net returns over 20 kg P2O5 ha-1 and 207 per cent, respectively. Further increase in levels of phosphorus was not found beneficial.
