Variety × Nutrient management interaction in greengram for important yield attributes under rainfed red lateritic inceptisol. Legume Research. 41(6): 854-860. doi: 10.18805/LR-3814.
The effect of five nutrient management practices on the yield and yield attributes, nutrient uptake and rain water use efficiency in four greengram  varieties (Dhauli, Pusa-9531, OBGG-52 and Nayagarh Local) in rainfed upland inceptisol with sandy- loam soil was studied in factorial RBD with three replications during Kharif 2009 to 2012. Significant variety × nutrient interaction was observed with respect to seed yield, nodulation and other yield attributing characters.  Based on the mean data over four years (2009-2012), highest seed yield of  5.84 q ha-1 was observed in Pusa 9531 with  lime+50% organic+ 50% inorganic  treatment  followed by Dhauli (5.53 q ha-1) with the same nutrient treatment. Highest RWUE was found in Lime + 50% organic + 50% inorganic treatment in all the varieties followed by 100% organic treatment in Dhauli, Pusa-9531 and OBGG-52 but in 50% organic + 50% inorganic treatment in case of Nayagarh  Local. The uptake of N, P and K was also observed to be the highest in Lime + 50% organic + 50% inorganic treatment in all the varieties.
