Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out during the kharif of 2019 at Agronomy Instructional Farm, Chimanbhai Patel College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar to study the effect of nutrient management practices on growth and yield by moth bean (Vigna aconitifolia L.) comprising of twelve treatment combinations comprising, two levels of FYM (F0: 0 t/ha, F1: 5 t/ha), three levels of phosphorus (P1: 20 kg P2O5/ha, P2: 30 kg P2O5/ha and P3: 40 kg P2O5/ha) and two levels biofertilizer {B0: Without biofertilizer and B1: With biofertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB)} evaluated in randomized block design with factorial concept and replicated three times. Among the different level of application FYM @5t/ha, phosphorus @40kg P2O5/ha and seed treatment of biofertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB) were recorded significantly higher value of all the growth and yield attributing characters viz., plant height, dry matter/plant, number of nodules/plant, fresh and dry weight of root nodule, number of branches/plant, length of pod, number of pods/plant, seeds/pod, seed yield and stover yield. All parameters in interaction effect were found to be non-significant.
