Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya, Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P.) to select out the suitable row ratio and find out the appropriate nutrient requirement for higher growth and production efficiency of sesame. Growth characters of sesame viz. plant height, number of leaves and dry weight/plant were found numerically higher in pigeonpea + sesame 2:2 and 4:2 paired row planting. However, grain yield, straw yield and production efficiency of sesame was recorded significantly higher in pigeonpea + sesame 2:2 paired row ratio. Addition of 100% RDF to main crop (20:60:30 kg NPK/ha) + PSB and 75% RDF to main crop + FYM 5 t/ha produced significantly higher growth parameter viz. plant height, number of leaves and dry weight/plant of sesame. However significantly higher grain, and straw yield and production efficiency of sesame were obtained under 100% RDF to main crop + PSB. Application of 100% RDF to main crop + PSB and 75% RDF to main crop + FYM 5 t/ha gave 65% and 58% higher production efficiency over FYM 10 t/ha (control) treatment.
