Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur during rabi season in 2015-16 and 2016-17. The experiment consisted of 24 treatment combinations comprising of three levels of fertility (50, 75 and 100 per cent RDF), four organic sources (FYM @ 5 and 10 t ha-1, vermicompost @ 2.5 and 5 t ha-1), and two bio-inoculations (Without inoculation and Azotobacter + PSB). Experiment was conducted under factorial randomized block design replicated thrice taking wheat var. Raj- 4037 as test crop. Enrichment of soil with 75 per cent RDF, application of vermicompost @ 5 t/ha and dual inoculations of Azotobacter + PSB significantly improve water holding capacity and organic carbon of soil. However, bulk density particle density, porosity, pH and EC were found non - significant. The maximum monetary return of ₹ 63688 with benefit cost ratio of 2.28 was obtained with 75% RDF, ₹ 64661 was found with vermicompost @ 5 t/ha and ₹ 63711 with benefit cost ratio of 2.28 was obtained with dual inoculation of Azotobacter + PSB.
