Abstract:
A field experiment entitled ‘‘Influence of Varieties and Integrated Nutrient Management on Growth, Yield and Quality of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.)’’ was conducted at the Department of Horticulture MJRP College of Agriculture and Research, Jaipur during kharif season 2018-2019. The experiment consisted of sixteen treatment and Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. The individual varieties V2 (Pusa Sukomal) significantly increased in number of green pods per plant (14.58) and V1 (Pusa Komal) number of seeds per pod (13.08), seed yield per plant (42.82 g), seed yield per hectare (79.22), V1 (Pusa Komal) test weight (15.29 g) and V2 (Pusa Sukomal) crude protein content in seed (20.66 %) respectively as compared to control. With the application of nutrient levels (N4) significant increase in number of green pods per plant (14.25), number of seeds per pod (13.17), seed yield per plant (28.82 g), seed yield per hectare (45.30 q), test weight (15.23 g) and crude protein content in seed (20.67%) as compared to treatment N1 was recorded. The treatment combination V1N4 (Pusa Komal) + (Vermicompost 2.5 t + Rhizobium (10 g/kg of seeds) + PSB (10 g/kg of seeds) + N (30 kg) + P2O5 (60 kg) + K2O (60 kg/ha). recorded the maximum yield parameters i.e. number of green pods per plant (19.00), number of seeds per pod (15.67), seed yield per plant (46.04 g), seed yield per hectare (85.55 q), and also qualitative parameters i.e. test weight (19.37 g) and crude protein content in seed (23.34%).
