Abstract:

A field experiment on the standardization of organic module for production of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum L.) was conducted during rabi season of 2007-08 and 2008-09 (two years). The experiment comprising of absolute control and varying proportion of organic and inorganic sources viz., 100 % Recommended Dose of N through FYM, 100 % RDN through castor cake, Rhizobium treatment, PSB treatment, Rhizobium + PSB treatment, 50 % Recommended Dose of N through FYM + Rhizobium, 50 % Recommended Dose of N through CC + Rhizobium, 50 % RDN through FYM + Rhizobium+ PSB, 50 % Recommended Dose of N through CC + Rhizobium+ PSB) and Recommended dose of fertilizer was laid out in randomized block design with four replications. It was found that RDF and varying combinations of organic sources produced significantly higher grain yield over absolute control. The seed and straw yield of fenugreek was found significant due to different treatments, wherein integrated use of organic sources of nitrogen (50 % RDN through castor cake + Rhizobium + PSB) recorded significantly higher seed and straw yield of fenugreek as compared to their individual use. Different treatments were failed to produce significant effect on nutrient content in seed and straw of fenugreek, but it was found significant with respect to nutrients uptake, wherein higher removal of nutrients by seed and straw were noticed under integrated use of organic sources of nitrogen as well as chemical fertilizer. The organic carbon and available phosphorus were also found significant due to different treatments, whereas the maximum amount of organic carbon was registered under 100 % RDN through FYM/castor cake. The maximum available phosphorus was recorded with the use of PSB and available potassium was found non-significant due to different treatments. Thus, it can be inferred that application of 50 % RDN through CC + Rhizobium+ PSB is better for realizing good soil health and sustainable higher yield levels.
