PERFORMANCE OF URDBEAN (PHASEOLUS MUNGO L.) VARIETIES UNDER DIFFERENT AGRO-INPUT MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN RAINFED CONDITIONP.R. Paikra and Madhulika Singh
A field experiment was carried out at Instructional cum Research Farm, IGKV, Raipur during kharif season of 2010. The soil of the experimental field was neutral in pH with low nitrogen and medium phosphorus and high potassium contents. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The treatment consisted of two varieties viz., V1- Azad-1 and V2- TU 94-2 with seven agro input combinations. Urdbean crop with seed rate of 20 kg ha-1 was shown on July 14, 2010 with a row and plant spacing of 30 x 10 cm. The crop was harvested on September 30th, 2010. Results revealed that variety Azad-1 recorded significantly highest seed and stover yield, PRI, PE, protein content and protein yield. As regards to different agro-input management practices, application of 100% RDF + FYM 5 t ha-1 + NAA 40 ppm + PSB + DAP 2% (A7) recorded significantly highest number of leaves, LAI, root length and dry biomass, CGR, RGR, seed and stover yield, harvest index, productivity rating index and production efficiency, protein content and protein yield.
