Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted during kharif seasons of 2015 to 2019 at the Organic Farming Unit, MPUAT, Udaipur, Rajasthan, to evaluate the effect of organic, integrated and inorganic crop management practices on yield and economics of maize + blackgram intercrop (2:1). The experiment comprises six nutrient management practices viz., 100% Organic management, 75% Organic + innovative practices, 50% Organic + 50% inorganic, 75% Organic + 25% inorganic, 100% Inorganic nutrient sources and State recommendation. The significantly maximum maize equivalent yield of maize + blackgram was obtained with the application of 100% inorganic management which was higher by 3.28%, 3.51%, 5.36%, 9.15% and 13.67% over 50% Organic + 50% inorganic, 75% Organic + 25% inorganic, State recommendation, 75% Organic + innovative practices and 100% Organic management, respectively. Further, 75% Organic + innovative practices recorded higher maize equivalent yield of maize + blackgram over 100% organic management by 4.96%. Similarly, 100% inorganic management recorded the maximum net return (Rs.40521/ha) and BC ratio (1.43) followed by State recommendation (Rs. 32338/ha and 0.94).
