Abstract:

Research work entitled onInfluence of Drought Mitigation Techniques on Growth and Yield of Pigeonpea Under Rainfed Conditions” was carried out during kharif seasons of 2015 and 2016 at RARS, Lam on deep black cotton soil. The treatments comprising of ten different practices pertaining to drought mitigation with three replications in randomized block design. The findings from the study revealed that all the drought management practices recorded significantly higher growth, yield attributes and grain yield over control. The maximum grain yield (2000 kg ha-1) was recorded with application of Pusa hydrogel @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + mulching with organic residues @ 5 t ha-1 which was closely followed by addition of FYM @ 5 t ha-1 + Pusa hydrogel @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + spraying of 2% KH2PO4 at flowering + 2% KNO3 at pod development stage (1868 kg ha-1). The highest values of gross returns (Rs.103200/-), net returns (Rs. 75335/-) and B:C ratio (2.7) were recorded with application of Pusa hydrogel @ 2.5 kg ha-1 + mulching with organic residues @ 5 t ha-1.
