Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2019 at the college farm, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari to study the “Effect of different nutrient management practices on yield potential of summer cowpea [Vigna unguiculata L.] under south Gujarat condition”. The soil of the experimental field was clayey in texture having medium to poor drainage, low in available nitrogen and organic carbon, medium in available phosphorus and high in available potassium. Total eight treatments viz., Control (T1), FYM 5 t/ha (T2),  100 % RDF (20:40:00:20 NPKS kg/ha) (T3), FYM 5 t/ha + 50 % RDF (T4), FYM 5 t/ha + 100 % RDF (T5), FYM 5 t/ha + 50 % RDF + 1 % spray of EBPS at 30 DAS and 60 DAS (T6), FYM 5 t/ha + 100 % RDF + 1 % spray of EBPS at 30 DAS and 60 DAS (T7) and FYM 5 t/ha + 100 % RDF + 1 % spray of urea at 60 DAS (T8) were tested in randomized block design with three replications. An application of FYM 5 t/ha + 100 % RDF + 1 % spray of EBPS at 30 DAS and 60 DAS recorded significantly higher plant height (64.50 cm) at harvest, number of branches per plant (5.07), number of pods per plant (13.67), pod length (13.43), number of seeds per pod (11.67), seed yield (1744 kg/ha), haulm yield (4238 kg/ha) and harvest index (29.18 %) over control. Similarly, the maximum gross realization Rs 99932/ha and net realization of Rs 58957/ha with BCR value of 2.44 were also observed with the application of FYM 5 t/ha + 100 % RDF + 1 % spray of EBPS at 30 DAS and 60 DAS.
