Abstract:
The experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2018 at the Instructional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, MPUAT, Udaipur, Rajasthan. The experiment consisted of 12 treatments comprising two fertility levels with one control viz., Control (F0), 50% RDF (F1) and 100% RDF (F2) and three enriched compost level with one control viz., Control (EC0), enriched compost 2 t/ ha (EC1), enriched compost 4 t/ ha (EC2) and enriched compost 6 t/ ha (EC3). The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design (FRBD) and replicated thrice. The results revealed that 100% RDF recorded significantly higher biological yield, grain yield, harvest index, cost of cultivation, gross returns and benefit cost ratio. Among enriched compost levels grain yield, biological yield, cost of cultivation and gross returns were higher under application of 6 t/ ha enriched compost but harvest index and benefit cost ratio was higher with application of 4 t/ ha enriched compost. Thus it can be concluded that application of 100% RDF with 4 t/ ha enriched compost in soybean is productive as well as profitable.
