Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2021 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P). The soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.6), low in organic carbon (0.51%), available N (230 kg/ha), available P (17.80 kg/ha) and available K (245.10 kg/ha). on the topic “Response of biofertilizer and foliar spray of organic amendments on growth and yield of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.)”, to study Treatments consisting of 3 kinds of Biofertilizers viz. Rhizobium, PSB and Rhizobium + PSB and 3 types of organic amendments viz. Panchagavya, Jeevamrutha and Beejamrutha There were 9 treatments each being replicated thrice and laid out in Randomized Block Design. The results revealed that treatment 7 (Rhizobium + PSB 20gm + Panchagavya 3% foliar spray) recorded maximum on no of pods per plant (15.43), length of pod (19.53), seeds per pod (10.68), test weight (133.40), seed yield (1025.50), harvest index (41.74), and B:C ratio (2.42). From the basis of one year experimentation, it is concluded that seed treatment with Rhizobium + PSB 20gm + Panchagavya 3% foliar spray was found more productive and economical.
