Abstract:

This investigation was undertaken to evaluate the performance of fenugreek under different levels of NPK for maximization of yield. The experiment was carried out at the HRS, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, India during the year 2013-14 and 2014-15. The variety ‘Hissar Sonali’ was taken under the study. Three levels of each nitrogen (40, 60 and 80 kg/ha), phosphorus (60, 80 and 100 kg/ha) and two levels of potassium (20 and 40 kg/ha) were included in this investigation. There were altogether 18 treatments. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with three replications. Among different treatment combination maximum plant height of 44.28 cm at 45 DAS with N80P80K40 but at 105 DAS maximum plant height was observed with N60P100K40 (108.17 cm). Plants grown under N60P80K40 combination, exhibited the maximum number of secondary branches (15.94) per plant. The yield attributing parameters like maximum pod length (10.96 cm) and number of seed per pod (15.32), maximum projected yield (17.20 q/ha) was recorded in N60P80K40. From yield maximization point of view, the most effective treatment was NPK @ 60:80:40 kg/ha followed by NPK @ 40:80:40 kg/ha and NPK @ 60:100:40 kg/ha under alluvial plains of West Bengal.
