Abstract:

An assessment of raised bed sowing of pigeon pea was done in the vertisols of Narsinghpur district in Central Narmada Valley Agro-climatic Zone of Madhya Pradesh during the years 2014-15 and 2015-16. Due to the long spell of rains in the district the flat bed sown pigeon pea was not giving good results. As an alternative the raised bed sowing as assessed. Pigeon pea variety TJT 501 was taken for the study. The results were very encouraging. Under the flat bed sowing the crop yield was just 9.75 q/ha which improved to 15.23 q/ha under the raise bed sowing. The flat bed sown pigeon pea fetched at gross return of Rs. 56800/- whereas the raised bed sown crop fetched a gross return of Rs. 88480/-. The Benefit – Cost ratio was 2.55 in the case of flatbed sowing and was 3.76 under the raised bed sowing. Overall the performance of raised bed sowing of pigeon pea was far better that the performance of the flat bed sown pigeon pea.
