Abstract:
Green gram (Vigna radiata) also known as moong is one of the main pulse crop of India. It is a rich source of protein along with fibre and iron. It can be cultivated as kharif as well as summer crop. In India It is grown in about 36 lakh hectares with the total production of about 17 lakh tonnes of grain with a productivity of about 500 kg/ha. Inorganic fertilizers at present are the major sources of providing nutrients and increasing yield of the green gram crop. But there are various issues such as environmental and health issues arising due to its hefty use. To overcome this problem and reduce the dependency on inorganic fertilizers the use of organic sources must be promoted. By keeping theses pointers in mind, a field experiment with the objective entitled “The study on response on bio-fertilizers along with inorganic fertilizers on yield attributes of green gram crop in Chitrakoot region” was performed. The experiment was conducted at Nanaji agriculture arm Rajaula, MGCGV, Chitrakoot Satna (M.P.). The experiment was conducted during the kharif season of the session 2021-22 with a total of three replications and thirteen treatments laid out in randomized block design (RBD) and the data collected thereafter was subjected to statistical analysis using analysis of variance (ANOVA). The variety of green gram that was used was “PDU-139”. The treatment with 50% RDF + rhizobium showed the maximum grain yield per hectare that is 2019.33kg/ha. Other than yield per hectare other yield attributing parameters such as pod per plant, seed per pod, test weight and grain yield per plot were also taken under consideration. The results showed that treatment with 50% RDF + Rhizobium showed the best yield and other yield contributing attributes.
