Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at Crop Research Center, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, with a view to compare the production potential under different micronutrients application and also to find out the economic viability of this cultivar for soil quality. The treatments comprised of consistent application of Rhizobium inoculation viz., Control, RDF (20:40:20) kg ha-1, RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1, RDF + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1, RDF + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1, RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1, RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1, RDF + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1 and RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1 were tested in RBD with three replications. SML-1827 was grown as a test variety. The results indicated that with the application of RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1 exhibited significant influence on yield attributes and yields of moong bean as compared to over rest of the micronutrients treatments. The maximum gross return was obtained in T9 (RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1) followed by T7 (RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1). The highest net return was obtained in T9 (RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1) followed by T7 (RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1), while minimum gross return and net return was obtained in T1 (control plot). Higher values of B: C ratio (2.35) was obtained in T9 (RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1). Thus the application of RDF + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 + B @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + Mo @ 1 kg ha-1 was found better for sustainability of moong bean.
