Abstract:
A technology was demonstrated in different location of District Ri-Bhoi of Meghalaya to showcasing the technology of organic nutrient management in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.) by comparing with the local farmer’s practice during the year 2021-22. The technology demonstrated i.e., FYM @ 5 t/ha + Neem cake @ 400 kg/ha+ vermicompost @ 5 t/ha + Rhizobium 10 kg/ha + PSB10 kg/ha recorded significantly higher yield i.e., 12.8 q/ ha and benefit cost ratio of 2.02 followed by farmers practice i.e., 8.6 q/ha of yield with benefit cost ratio of 1.45 from the farmers field which was done through imbalance fertilizer application. Regarding the soil parameters also seen a significant increase of soil nutrients in the harvesting stage of crop compare to the soil collected from the plot before the treatment as well as with the plot from Farmers practice. Furthermore, extension gap of 4.2 q/ha, technology gap of 2.2 q/ha and the technology index of 14.66 achieved from the result of the Treatments shows the feasibility and suitability of the demonstrated technology in the Field level among the Farmers under Hilly Agricultural System of North Easten India.
