Abstract:
The present investigation Effect of vermicompost and levels of nitrogen on growth, yield and yield attributes in pea (Pisum sativum L.) rhizosphere” Pot experiment was conducted in completely randomized design with eight treatments and three replications. Details of treatments are as under T1 - Control, T2 -N40:P60:K50 (Kg ha-1), T3 -N20:P60: K50 (Kg ha-1), T4 -Vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1, T5-enriched Vermicompost @5 t ha-1, T6-N20:P60:K50 + vermicompost @ 2.5tha-1, T7-N2O: P60: K50+ enriched vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1, and T8- N10: P60: K50+ enriched vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1. Based on the experimental results, it may said that enriched vermicompost contained higher mineral element content than normal vermicompost. Treatment T7- (N2O:P60:K50+enriched vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1) was found to be superior to all other treatments in increasing growth, nodulation and yield of the pea. Nodule count and pod yield with this treatment were 12.09% and 7.33% higher than those recorded with RDF.
