Abstract

AICRP (All India Co-ordinated Research Project) on MULLaRP (Mung, Urad , Lentil, Lathyrus, Rajma , Pigeon pea) conducted a field experimental during kharif 2007. Raised bed sown crop produced significantly superior growth characters, yield attributing traits, seed and straw yields as compare to flat bed sown crop. 20 kg seed/ha recorded significantly higher grain and straw yield , while all growth characters (except plant height) and all yield attributing traits were higher with 10 kg seed/ha . Application of 100% RDF (20 kg N + 60 kg P2O5 + 20 kg K2O + 20 kg S/ha) produced significantly higher growth characters, yield attributing traits (number of clusters and pods per plant) and seed and straw yield over 50% RDF, However, application of 75% RDF recorded significantly higher seed and straw yield than 50% RDF.The other yield attributes like pod length, seeds per pod and seed index remained unaffected due to fertilizer doses.
