Effect of Different Varieties and Nutrient Management on Productivity, Profitability, Quality and Nutrient Uptake of Clusterbean [Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (L.) Taub]
A research experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2011 and 2012 at College of Agriculture, Research Farm, Gwalior (M.P.) entitled Effect of different varieties and nutrient management on productivity, profitability, quality and nutrient uptake of clusterbean. On the basis of two years pooled data the variety HG-563 gave significantly higher seed yield (1945 kg/ha), net return (1,78,151/ha), BC ratio (10.66), gum content 30.94% (gum yield 603.16 kg/ha), protein content 32.19% (protein yield 627.36 kg/ha), Nitrogen uptake (322.59 kg/ha), Phosphorus uptake (20.06 kg/ha) and Potash uptake (138.22 kg/ha) as compared to other varieties. As regards nutrients management, the application of 75 % RDF + 5 tonnes Vermicompost recorded significantly higher seed yield (1952 kg/ha), net profit (1,77,089/ha), gum content 31.59% (gum yield 617.39 kg/ha), protein content 32.62% (protein yield 637.53 kg/ha), Nitrogen uptake (314.93 kg/ha), Phosphorus uptake (20.43 kg/ha) and Potash uptake (137.39 kg/ha) as compared to other nutrient management treatments.
