Abstract:
A field experiment on effect of foliar spray of vermiwash and panchgavya on growth and yield of field pea was carried out at Pulses Research Station, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar during Rabi 2020-21 in loamy sand soil. Ten treatments comprising of RDF (20:40:00 kg NPK/ha), 75% RDF + vermiwash @ 5 and 10% (at 30, 45, 30 and 45 DAS, respectively) and 75% RDF + panchgavya @ 4% (at 30, 45, 30 and 45 DAS) were tried in randomized block design with four replications. 75% RDF + panchgavya @ 4% at 30 and 45 DAS resulted in significantly higher growth attributes viz., vine length (cm), number of branches/plant, days to physiological maturity and 50 per cent flowering, number of root nodules/plant and fresh weight (mg) of nodules per plant as well as yield attributes viz., pods/plant, seed weight/plant(g), seed index(g), seed(1957 kg/ha) and haulm yield (2515 kg/ha). The same treatment also recorded the maximum net return (₹67635/-) and benefit: cost ratio (BCR) (2.92). A fertilizer saving of 25% was possible by adopting either foliar spray of panchgavya @ 4% or vermiwash @ 10% at 30 DAS along with 75% NPK application. It also enhanced yield and economic parameters.
