Cite article:- Mahavishnan* K., Prasad Mangal, Rekha* Bhanu K. (2024). PRODUCTION POTENTIAL AND QUALITY PARAMETERS OF COTTON (GOSSYPIUM HIRSUTUM L.) AS INFLUENCED BY INTEGRATED NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT OPTION IN COTTON - SUNFLOWER CROPPING SYSTEM. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 42(2): 147 -149. doi: .
Field experiments were conducted during kharif and rabi seasons 2002-03 and 2003-04,
respectively to investigate the response of cotton to integrated nutrient management in cotton - sunflower
cropping system. Highest seed cotton yield (23.47 and 26.93 q ha-1) and stalk yield (57.84 and 64.32
q ha-1) were obtained with combined application of all the three sources of N [50% RDF + FYM +
Mungbean Intercrop Incorporation] that remained at par with individual application of 100% RDF as
well as combined application of 50% RDF and FYM. Quality parameters viz., ginning percentage, lint
index, seed index, Bartletts index, fibre length, fibre fineness, bundle strength and maturity coefficient
were remained unaffected due to various N management practices in cotton, however, higher values
were observed with either application o FYM alone or in combination with other N sources.
