Title : Residual Effect of Nutrient Management Practices on Productivity of Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) and Nutrient Budgeting in Pearlmillet-Mungbean System of Typic Ustocrepts

Abstract :

A Field experiment was conducted to evaluate the residual effect of nutrient management on growth, yield attributes and yield of mungbean. The experiment was conducted in a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with 10 treatments and 4 replications during kharif, 2019 at Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat. All the nutrient management practices were followed in the previously sown pearlmillet crop. The Present experiment evaluates the residual effect of these nutrient management practices on mungbean. The residual effect of 100 % RDF + 15 t FYM ha-1 + Bio NP Consortia was recorded in plant height, number of pods per plant, test weight and protein content. The total number of nodules and the dry weight of nodules were significantly higher under the residual effect of 15 t FYM ha-1 + 5.0 t Vermicompost ha-1 + Bio NP Consortia (T10). The partial nutrient balance of the whole cropping system showed that nitrogen fertilization showed a positive balance, whereas phosphorus and potassium showed a negative nutrient balance under different nutrient management practices.
