Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on sesame during semi-rabi season of 2014-15 in vertisols of Madhya Pradesh at the Research Farm, Project Coordinating Unit (Sesame and Niger), JNKVV, Jabalpur to study the impact of integrated application of chemical fertilizers along with organic manures and biofertilizer on growth, yield attributes, yield and economics of Sesame. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design having three replications with twelve treatments. The crop growth was better with integrated application of 100% recommended dose of NPK through fertilizer (RDF), 75% RDN through FYM (25%), vermicompost (25%) and neem oil cake (25%). Similarly higher seed, stover and oil yield were recorded under application of 100% RDF + 75% RDN through FYM (25%) + VC (25%) + NOC (25%) which was at par with application of 150% RDF along with micronutrients (Zn and Fe) and Azotobacter. In terms of economics, integrated application of 150% RDF along with micronutrients (Zn and Fe) and Azotobacter fetched higher gross and net monetary return and also a higher B: C ratio of 1.72 as compared to other treatments.


Keywords: Azotobacter, FYM, Neem oil cake, Nutrient management, Sesame, Vermicompost.
