Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan) during kharif¸ 2016 on loamy sand soil. The experiment comprising of four levels of vermicompost (Control,1.5, 3.0 and 4.5 t/ha) and four moisture conservation practices (control, dust mulch, straw mulch and plastic mulch), thereby making 16 treatment combinations was laid out in randomized block design and replicated thrice. Results indicated that every increase in level of vermicompost from control to @ 3.0 t/ha fetched significantly higher yield viz., seed (834 kg/ha), stalk (2073 kg/ha) and biological yields (2907 kg/ha) over preceding levels, application of @ 4.5 t/ha provided the gross returns (Rs. 82082/ha) and net returns (Rs. 43964/ha) over @ 3.0 t/ha, @ 1.5 t/ha and control. Application of straw mulch the significantly higher yield viz., seed (810 kg/ha), stalk (2022 kg/ha) and biological yields (2832 kg/ha), gross returns (Rs. 72900/ha) and net returns (Rs. 45979/ha) over plastic mulch, dust mulch and control.
