The present investigation was conducted during Kharif season of year 2017 at farmers’ field of Raipur district of Chhattisgarh Plains to find out effect of different land configuration techniques on Fusarium wilt of pigeonpea as well as growth, yield and yield attributes of pigeonpea. All treatment had significant effect on wilt disease incidence, growth, yield, yield attributing characters like plant height, number of branches plant-1, number of pods plant-1, number of seeds pod-1, 100 seed weight, seed yield, straw yield, harvest index and disease index. T1 Ridge and furrow method with 90 x 20 cm spacing resulted in lower wilt incidence at 60 DAS (2.90 per cent) and 150 DAS (9.18 per cent), higher plant height (182.98 cm), number of branches plant-1 (17.97), number of pods
plant-1 (147.67), number of seeds pod-1 (3.55), 100 seed weight (10.24 g), seed yield (16.91 q ha-1), straw yield (44.31 q ha-1) and harvest index (27.62 per cent), respectively and was found superior over rest of the treatments, which was followed by T2 – flat bed method of spacing 90 x 20 cm and T3 – flat bed method of spacing 60 x 20 cm. The maximum wilt incidence at 60 DAS and 150 DAS was associated with crop sown broadcasted (8.36 and 30.93 per cent, respectively). Also, the minimum value of all above growth, yield and yield attributing characters was recorded with control plot i.e. broadcast method.
