A field experiment entitled “Integrated nutrient management in summer cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.) under South Gujarat condition” conducted at Navsari with eight treatment combinations replicated thrice in factorial randomized block design during the summer season of 2016. The treatment consisted combinations of two levels of inorganic fertilizers (F1:50 % RDF, F2:100 % RDF); two levels organic manures (O1: FYM @ 0 t ha-1, O2: FYM @ 2.5 t ha-1) and two levels bio-fertilizers (B1: No inoculation, B2: seed inoculation with Rhizobium and phosphate solubilizing bacteria). As regards the growth parameters the higher plant height (cm), number of branches per plant, days to 50 % flowering, number of nodules per plant, dry matter per plant (g), number of pod per plant, number of seed per pod, 100 seed weight (g), higher grain (kg ha-1), haulm yield (kg ha-1), harvest index (%) were significantly increased to a greater extent by the treatment 100 % RDF (F2), FYM @ 2.5 t ha-1 (O2) and seed inoculation with Rhizobium and phosphate solubilizing bacteria (B2) which was found significantly differ from the 50 % RDF (F1), FYM @ 0 t ha-1 (O1) and No inoculation (B1) treatments.

Keywords: Cowpea, RDF, Rhizobium, Phosphate solubilizing bacteria, FYM
