Abstract:

Garden pea is an important vegetable crop due to its high protein content. Plant nutrients from single source cannot meet with optimum and sustained yield levels. Nutrients have to be supplied from different sources in an integrated manner and balanced amounts. However, information in these aspects in garden pea in Assam is lacking. Keeping in view of the above facts the research was conducted with the objective to study the effect of biofertilizer consortium, FYM, enriched compost and chemical fertilizers on sustainable production and profitability of garden pea. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with seven treatments and replicated thrice. The treatments were T1: NPK @ 20:46:0kgha-1 + FYM @ 5tha-1 (RDF), T2:NPK @ 20:46:0kgha-1 + FYM @ 5tha-1 + biofertilizer consortium, T3: NPK @ 20:46:0kgha-1 + FYM @ 10tha-1, T4: NPK @ 10:46:0kgha-1 + FYM @ 10tha-1 + biofertilizer consortium, T5: Enriched compost @ 3tha-1, T6: Enriched compost @ 1.5tha-1 + biofertilizer consortium and T7: Biofertilizer consortium. The data recorded were analysed through the Analysis of Variance method. From this study, it can be suggested that a judicial combination of biofertilizers along with FYM, enriched compost and inorganic is beneficial towards improving yield attributes of pea with maximum profit.
