Abstract:

A comparative study to evaluate the effect of different time of sowing on productivity and economics of summer mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) production was undertaken under ‘Cluster Frontline Demonstrations on Pulses’ of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi. The demonstrations were carried out in 72 different locations at farmers’ fields in district Tarn Taran of Punjab. Summer mungbean variety SML 668 was supplied to all the farmers. Likewise, similar seed rate, nutrient applications and other agronomic practices were followed in all the locations of experimentation. The demonstrations were categorized into seven groups based on sowing dates and standard meteorological weeks from March 11 (11th week) to April 28, 2016 (17th week). The results of investigation indicated, overall best performance of summer mungbean when sown between 18th to 24th March (12th standard meteorological week) at all the locations of demonstration. The significant increases of 47.3 and 112.6% in economic yield was registered in crop sown between 18-24 march respectively over crop sown between the period of 15th to 21st April and sowing between the period of 22nd to 28th April. Similarly, extent of increase in biological yield with crop sown in 12th standard meteorological week (D2) was significantly higher by 48.4 and 84.3%, respectively over crop sown in 16th and 17th standard meteorological week. Sowing of summer mungbean between 18th and 24th March also provided maximum production and monetary efficiency to the farmers. Present results thus, indicated that summer mungbean grower may get higher production and maximum economic returns by sowing crop between 11th March and 14th April.
