Abstract:

The field investigation was carried out at the Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola during Kharif season of 2015-16 on clay loam soil. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications. The main plot treatments comprised of four land configuration treatments viz., flat bed sowing, ridges and furrow, paired row planting and broad bed furrow while the sub plot treatments consisted of three nutrient levels viz., 75 % RDF, 100 % RDF and 125 % RDF. The treatment ridges and furrow significantly improved these growth parameters as compared to flatbed sowing and paired row planting but was found to be at par with broad bed furrow. Significantly highest seed yield (1316 kg ha-1) and straw yield (3289 kg ha-1) were recorded with ridges and furrow as compared to paired row planting and flatbed but was at par with broad bed furrow. The land configuration treatment ridges and furrow recorded significantly higher GMR (Rs.42999 ha-1), NMR (Rs.24032 ha-1) and B: C ratio (2.26). As far as nutrient levels are concerned it was noted that the growth attribute viz., plant height, number of functional leaves, leaf area, stem girth and dry matter were significantly improved with the application of 125 % RDF but was at par with 100 % RDF. Similarly yield attributes such as diameter of disc, weight of disc, number of filled seed, seed weight per plant and 100 seed weight were also significantly higher with the application of 125 % RDF. Application of 125 % RDF recorded higher seed yield per ha. GMR, NMR and B: C ratio than 100 % and 75 % RDF.
