An experiment was conducted during 2014-15 and 2015-16 at the Instructional Farm of Uttar Banga Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Pundibari, Cooch Behar, West Bengal to study the performance of garden pea (Pisum sativum var hortense L.) varieties under conventional and organic nutrient sources. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with 3 three replications. Two growing conditions (conventional and organic) and seven garden pea varieties (namely, KSP-110, Arkel, Super Gold -10, PSM-3, Azad P-1, Monsson-10 and Kohinoor-10) were taken as treatment. Irrespective of treatments seeds were inoculated with Rhizobium leguminosarum (20gm/kg of seed). In the conventional condition, recommended dose of fertilizer of N:P205:K20 (30:50:50 kg/ha) and FYM (15t/ha) was applied as nutrient source whereas, in organic condition the nutrient source was vermicompost @ 2 t/ha + Rock phosphate @ 106 kg/ha + Wood ash @ 1.17 t/ha + FYM (15t/ha). Higher yield was recorded in conventional sources of nutrients as compared to organic sources of nutrients. However, higher magnitude of quality parameters viz, protein %, beta carotene and ascorbic acid content was recorded in organic sources of nutrients. Under conventional sources of nutrients, KSP-110 recorded significantly higher yield of 13.03 t/ha followed by Kohinoor-10 (12.03 t/ha) and Monsoon-10 (10.15 t/ha). In organic sources of nutrients, the higher yield was recorded in Kohinoor-10 (11.48 t/ha) which was also statistically at par with KSP-110 (11.27 t/ha). Considering the fresh pod yield and benefit: cost ratio, the garden pea variety KSP-110 may be selected for growing under conventional nutrient sources whereas, Kohinoor -10 may be selected for growing with organic sources of nutrients under the terai zone of West Bengal.
