Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted during Zaid season of 2021 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P). The soil of the experiment plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.1), low in organic carbon (0.82%), available N (291.24 kg/ha), available P (32.85 kg/ha) and available K (264.78 kg/ha). The treatment consisted of two sources (Nitrogen levels 10, 15, 20 kg/ha) and (foliar application of Panchagavya at 2.5%, 5%) respectively. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with nine treatments replicates thrice. Result defined that maximum plant height (73.83), number of nodules (18.33), dry weight (25.88), pods/plant (17.60), test weight (20.27), seed yield (1723.33), straw yield (1533.33), harvest index (52.05), maximum gross returns (137,866.4), net returns (98,971.90) and benefit cost ratio (2.54) were obtained in the treatment combination of Nitrogen 20 kg/ha + panchagavya 5% compared to other treatments.
