Abstract:

A cowpea (Vigna unguiculata Walp L.) cultivar trail was conducted at the University of Horticultural Sciences, Bagalkot during the monsoon season in 2016. The objective of this trail is to evaluate suitable variety and optimum dose of N, P, and K for the northern dry zone of Karnataka and also to evaluate nutrition quality (protein content) of vegetable cowpea as influenced by the different nutrient management practices. Cowpea seeds are sown on different treatment beds like 125 %, 100 %, 75 %, 50 % recommend dose of fertilizers at a spacing of 45 cm row and 20 cm between the seeds. And observe for the growth parameters like plant height (cm), number of leaves, leaf area index at 30and 60 days interval and observe yield parameters like number pods per plant, number of cluster per plant, yield parameters like pod length (cm), pod fresh weight (g/plant), seed fresh weight (g/plant), total bio mass yield (kg/ha), pod yield (kg/ha) and seed yield per hectare (kg/ha) and quality parameters like protein percent and stover yield during harvest as influenced under different nutrient management practices. The result showed that the treatment of 125 % recommend dose of fertilizer along with variety Arka Suman showed significantly increase in growth parameters, yield parameters and quality parameters during crop growth period.
