Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at Agricultural Science Centre Sagar, Madhya Pradesh during kharif 2014-15 to 2016-17 to evaluate the impact of the sowing methods and integrated pest management practices on yield, disease and pest incidence in soybean. The results revealed that the broad bed furrow (BBF) sown soybean resulted remarkably higher plant height, no. of root nodules/plant, no. of branches/plant, no. of pods/plant, no. of seeds/pod, seed index, seed and straw yield (50.2 cm, 18.15, 3.24, 41.5, 3.35 12.34 g, 1510 kg/ha and 2.31 t/ha) respectively in comparison to other sowing methods. Among the IPM practices, these parameters were highest in IPM-1 followed by IPM-2 over control. Maximum (10.8 and 9.2%) and minimum (6.5 and 4.6%) foliar and root rot disease incidence was noted in flatbed planted soybean and BBF sown crop respectively. Minimum incidence of foliar and root rot disease was observed under the treatment IPM-2 as compared to control plot. Minimum girdle beetle, semilooper and pod borer infestation was recorded in BBF sown crop; however these were lowest in IPM-2 among the IPM practices except pod borer which recorded lowest in IPM-1. Highest net return was recorded in BBF planted soybean and IPM-1 with the incremental net return of Rs. 13155 and 19250/ha respectively.
