Field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2012 and 2013 at the N. E. Borlaug Crop Research Centre, G. B. Pant University of Agriculture and technology, Pantnagar, U. S. Nagar (Uttarakhand) to study the effect of different resource conservation technique (RCT) practices on the growth and yield of greengram. Treatments consisted of two levels of tillage system i.e. conventional tillage (CT) and reduced tillage (RT) with and without paddy straw mulching in main plots and two level of fertility (100 and 75% RDF) in sub plots and were laid out in factorial split plot design with three replications. The results of the experiments revealed that plant growth of greengram was increased with RCT over conventional management practices. Conventional tillage promoted higher root length than reduced tillage however, root dry matter and functional root nodules were higher in reduced tillage. Both straw mulch and 100% RDF increased root length, dry matter and functional nodules of greengram. Reduced tillage practices favoured the greengram seed yield. In general, yield was better when applied with paddy straw mulch along with 100% RDF during summer season of 2012 and 2013.
