Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner, Jaipur (Rajasthan) during kharif season of 2018 to study the effect of moisture conservation practices and sulphur fertilization on growth, yield attributes and yield of mothbean. The experiment comprising of five moisture conservation practices (control, dust mulch, pusa hydrogel, stover mulch, pusa hydrogel + stover mulch) and four sulphur fertilization levels (control, 15, 30 and 45 kg/ha), thereby making 20 treatment combinations was laid out in factorial randomized block design and replicated thrice. Results showed that different moisture conservation practices and sulphur fertilization brought considerable improvement in growth, yield attributes and yield in mothbean. Among moisture conservation practices, stover mulch proved significantly superior to control, dust mulch, pusa hydrogel with respect to growth attributes (plant height, dry matter accumulation, number of branches and root nodules) and remained at par with pusa hydrogel + stover mulch. The yield attributes (number of pods/plant and number of seeds/pod), and seed yield (805 kg/ha), stover yield (1862 kg/ha) and biological yields (2667 kg/ha) were also significantly higher under the treatment stover mulch over control, dust mulch, pusa hydrogel but remained at par with pusa hydrogel + stover mulch. Result further showed that every increase in level of sulphur fertilization up to 30 kg/ha by and large significantly improved most of the growth and yield determining characters of mothbean over lower levels. It also recorded significantly higher seed yield (816 kg/ha), stover yield (1905 kg/ha) and biological yields (2721 kg/ha) over control and 15 kg/ha and found at par with 45 kg/ha.
