Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif 2015 at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Ganiwan, Chitrakoot district of Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh on silty loam soil to assess the effect of varieties and plant geometries on rain fed Pigeon pea crop. Treatments comprised of 3 levels each of variety (UPAS 120, Bahar 777, ICPL 88039) and planting geometries (Uniform 50 cm routs, paired row 40/60 cm, uniform 60 rows). Results revealed that varieties did not differed significantly from each other in growth, yield attributes, yield and economic parameters only with one exception of number of pods/plant which was found maximum of 68.03 pods / plant in UPAS-120. However, numerically UPAS-120 produced highest of 981.00 kg/ha seed yield and earned maximum net return of Rs. 25494/ha with 2.34 B: C ratio, other two varieties Bahar 777 and ICPL 88039 produced 923.50 and 928.46 kg/ha seed yield and earned Rs. 23279 and 23155 /ha not return with 2.22 and 2.20 B:C ratio, respectively. Among plant geometries, uniform 60 cm rows planting attained highest values of growth and yield attributes, thus produced significantly highest of 1164.30 kg/ha seed yield and earned maximum of Rs. 33336/ha net return with 2.74 B:C ratio. Other plant geometries of uniform 50 cm rows and paired rows 40/60 cm produced 805.92 and 862.73 kg/ha seed yield and earned Rs. 18182 and 20410/ha net return with 1.95 and 2.07 B: C ratio, respectively. Thus, uniform 60 cm rows planting produced 44.5 and 35.0 of higher seed yield and earned 83.3 and 63.3% higher net return than uniform 50 cm rows and paired row 40/60 cm planting, respectively.
