Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Coastal Soil Salinity Research Station, Navsari Agricultural University, Danti-Umbharat during rabi season of the year 2015-16 on “Effect of soil conditioner and INM on yield of mungbean (var Co: 4) grown on partially reclaimed coastal salt affected soil of South Gujarat”. In all 10 treatment combinations consisting of two levels of soil conditioner (G1= Control, G2= Gypsum application @ 2 t ha-1), and five levels of INM (Integrated Nutrient Management) (F1: 100% RDF(20:40:00 NPK kg ha-1), F2: 100% RDF+ Bio-compost @ 5 t ha-1+ bio fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB),F3: 75% RDF+ Bio-compost @ 5 t ha-1+ bio fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB), F4: 50% RDF+ Bio-compost @ 5 t ha-1+ bio fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB) and F5: Bio-compost @ 5t ha-1) were tried in FRBD (Factorial Randomized Block Design) with four replications. The results revealed that soil conditioner and INM significantly influenced the yield and yield attributes of mungbean. Application of gypsum @ 2 t ha-1was found significantly superior over control (G1: No gypsum) by recording higher values of number of pods per plant (33.1), number of seeds per pod (10.15), seed yield (1130kg ha-1) and stover yield (3829kg ha-1) as compared to rest of the INM levels. The G × F interaction was also found to be significant for all the above characters. In all the cases, treatment G2F2recorded 34.90, 10.62, 4065 kg ha-1and 1185 kg ha-1 values of number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, stover yield and seed yield, respectively, which were significantly superior over rest of the treatments. However G2F2 in most of the cases remained at par with treatment G2F3. The net return as well as a BCR value was also higher with the treatment G2F2.
