Abstract:

A pot experiment was conducted during kharif-2016 at Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore (Karnataka) to study the residual effect of segregated and unsegregated urban solid waste compost on yield and nutrient uptake by cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.). The experiment was laid out under Randomized complete block design with three replication and eleven treatments. Among the treatments, the application of 100 per cent NPK + segregated urban solid waste compost (10 t ha-1) significantly increased the growth parameters (number of branches plant-1, number of leaves plant-1, leaf area, pod weight plant-1, pod length and nodule count), yield and uptake of nutrients (macro and secondary nutrients) by grain and haulm of cowpea as compared to application of chemical fertilizer alone. However, micronutrients uptake was recorded significantly higher in treatment which received 100 per cent NPK + unsegregated urban solid waste compost @ 10 t ha-1.
