Abstract:

A field experiment consisting of 2 fertility levels viz. 50% of recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) and 100% RDF (20: 40: 20 kg ha-1 of N: P2O5: K2O); 2 row spacings (30 and 45 cm) and 3 genotypes [HG-100, HG-8-1 and HG-563(c)] was conducted at the Research Farm, College of Agriculture, Gwalior, India during kharif 2010 to find out their effects on growth and yield attributing characters of cluster bean. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design of 2 x 2 x 3 with 12 treatment combinations and 3 replications. Application of 100% RDF had better response on growth and yield attributing characters viz. plant height, number of branches, plant-biomass, LAI, number of pods plant-1 and seeds pod-1 than 50% RDF. These parameters had also shown positive results under wider row spacing of 45 cm than 30 cm. Among the tested cultivars cv. HG-100 was the most promising compared to cv. HG-8-1 and cv. HG-563(c). The combined effects of growth and yield contributing characters were ultimately reflected in production of the highest seed yield by sowing of cluster bean cv. HG-100 at 45 cm row spacing and with 100% RDF which should be recommended for the farmers of Gird region of Madhya Pradesh, India during kharif.
