Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Oilseed Research Farm, C.S.A. University of agriculture and Technology, Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh) continuously three years since 2016-17 to 2018-19 to study the response of late sown pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L. Millsp.) to nutrient and pest management. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design in three replications. Among the all treatments, recommended dose of fertilizer (N:P:K:S:Zn kg ha-1:: 20:50:20:20:20) application was common. Investigation results revealed that the application of T6 (RDF + 2% urea + 0.5% B + 0.5% Zn spray at 50% flowering) + Indoxacarb at flowering + one systemic insecticide 15 days after first spray was produces 30.89% higher grain yield and Gross income; and 28.27% higher B:C cost ratio over the application of RDF. Therefore, in comparison to RDF, particularly on economic point of view, we may conclude that the application of RDF + 2% urea + 0.5% B + 0.5% Zn spray at 50% flowering + Indoxacarb 14.5% SC at flowering + one systemic insecticide 15 days after first spray may be suggested for nutrient and pest management practice in long duration pigeonpea to attained the maximum grain yield and economic return.
