Abstract:
Field experiments were conducted at the Agricultural Research Farm, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, U. P. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design consisting 24 treatment combinations replicated thrice. The treatments comprised of four planting techniques viz. uniform row, paired row, ridge-furrow and raised bed system and six integrated nitrogen management practices viz. 100% RDN (IF) to pearlmillet + no fertilizer to greengram, 100% RDN (IF) to pearlmillet + 100% RDF (IF) to greengram, 25% RDN (IF) + 25% RDN (VC) to pearlmillet + 100% RDF (IF) to greengram, 50% RDN (IF) + 25% RDN (VC) to pearlmillet + 100% RDF (IF) to greengram, 75% RDN (IF) + 25% RDN (VC) to pearlmillet +100% RDF (IF) to greengram and 100% RDN (IF) + 25% RDN (VC) to pearlmillet + 100% RDF (IF) to greengram. Raised bed system being at par with ridge-furrow system showed its significant superiority over paired row and uniform row system in respect of yield attributes, yield, LER, MAI and economics. Application of 100% RDN (IF) + 25% RDN (VC) to pearlmillet + 100% RDF (IF) to greengram was found significantly most effective in increasing yield attributes, yield, economics and productivity over others treatments.
