Abstract

At Hisar, field experiment was conducted with moongbean [Vigna radiata (L) Wilczek] during the kharif 2000–01 and 2001–02 to study the effect of various levels of farmyard manure-FYM (0, 5, 10 and 15 t ha−1) and phosphorus (0,20,40 and 60 kg ha−1) on grain yield and economics of its cultivation. Increasing levels of FYM improved the grain yield of moongbean. Among various levels of phosphorus, 60 kg P2O5 ha−1 being at par with 40 kg P2O5 ha−1 gave significantly higher grain yield than 20kg P2O5 ha−1 and no phosphorus (control). Highest net returns and per cent increase in net returns over control were recorded with 10 t FYM and 40 kg P2O5 ha−1 with benefit: cost ratio of 0.87 and 1.05, respectively.
