Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during Zaid season of 2015-16 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Naini Agricultural Institute, SHUATS, Allahabad. The experiment consisted of two different variety of blackgram (Type-9 and Sekhar-2) and five sources of nutrient (100% Organic, 100% Inorganic, 75% Organic + 25% Inorganic, 50% Organic + 50% Inorganic and 25% Organic + 75% Inorganic on the basis of N & K), which was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications. The result revealed that blackgram variety Sekhar-2 with 75% Organic (22.5 q/ha FYM + 125.03 kg/ha BM)) + 25% Inorganic (27.75 kg/ha DAP + 6.25 kg/ha MOP) on the basis of N & K, recorded maximum dry weight (12.49 g), highest number of pods/plant (24.55), number of seeds/pod (7.07) and test weight(42.19 g) which attributed in obtaining highest grain yield (872.96 kg/ha), stover yield (2511.11 kg/ha) and harvest index (33.60%).
