Abstract:

A study was conducted to evaluate “Effect of land configuration and bio-organic on exchangeable cations in soil after harvest of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) under costal salt affected soils” during rabi seasons of 2014-15 and 2015-16 at Coastal Soil Salinity Research Station, NAU, Danti. Twelve treatment combinations comprised of three levels of land configuration (L1: Flat bed, L2: Raised bed and L3: Ridge and furrow) in main plot and four levels of bio-organic [B1: No organic fertilizer + bio-fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB), B2: FYM @ 10 t ha-1 + bio-fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB), B3: Biocompost @ 5 t ha-1 + bio-fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB) and B4: Vermicompost @ 2 t ha-1 + bio-fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB)] in sub plot were evaluated in split plot design with four replications. The results indicated that land configuration treatments failed to produce significant effect on exchangeable cations (Ca+2 + Mg+2, K+ and Na+) whereas, application of FYM @ 10 t ha-1 + bio-fertilizer (Rhizobium + PSB) (B2) was appreciably improved the exchangeable cations i.e., Ca+2 + Mg+2 and K+ and considerably decreased exchangeable Na+ ion and ESP in soil after harvest of chickpea crop over rest of the treatments.
