Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted in split plot design with three replications, during rainy seasons of 2016 and 2017 at Rajasthan Agriculture Research Institute, Durgapura to study the growth, productivity and economics of fenugreek - pearl millet cropping system by using four levels of phosphorus (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg P2O5/ha) and six treatments of zinc and zinc solubilizer [0, 2.5 and 5.0 kg Zn/ha, zinc solubilizer (Bacillus endophyticus), 2.5 kg Zn/ha + zinc solubilizer and 5 kg Zn/ha + zinc solubilizer] applied to fenugreek. Results revealed that residual effects of 60 kg P2O5/ha and 5 kg Zn/ha + zinc solubilizer applied to fenugreek increased grain yield of pearl millet by 52 and 46%, respectively. Residual effect of different levels of phosphorous and zinc significantly increased the nitrogen and phosphorous contents and uptake by pearl millet grain and stover, up to 60 kg P2O5/ha and 5 kg Zn/ha + zinc solubilizer, however, Increasing level of residual phosphorous had depressive effect on zinc content of grain and stover. The effect of 5 kg Zn/ha + zinc solubilizer was at par with 2.5 kg Zn/ha + zinc solubilizer.
