Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out at to study the impact of set row cultivation on pearlmillet – sunflower crop sequence productivity and microbial population at AICRP on Dry land Agriculture, Regional Agricultural Research Station, Vijayapura, Karnataka during three consecutive kharif and rabi season. The pooled data indicated that, application of tank silt + crop residue in set furrows with paired row spacing (45-135-45 cm) recorded significantly higher pearlmillet grain yield (1737 kg/ha) over rest of the treatments. However, it was on par with the treatment receiving tank silt + crop residue in set furrows either with wider row (135 cm) or paired row planting techniques (45-90-45 cm). In succeeding sunflower crop recorded higher sunflower yield (717 kg/ha) with application of tank silt + crop residue in set furrows with wider row spacing (135 cm) followed by tank silt + crop residue in set furrows with paired row planting of 45-90-45 cm and 45-135-45 cm (674 and 694 kg/ha, respectively) and were significantly higher over farmers practice (312 kg/ha). Similarly, considerable improvement in the population of soil micro-organisms was noticed. Application of tank silt and respective crop residues in set furrows with different planting patterns showed significantly higher population in bacteria, fungi, Actionmycetes, Azotobacter, PSB and Fluorescent Pseudomonas.
