Author(s): Devendra Kumar, RP Singh, UD Awasthi, SK Uttam, Raj Kumar and Mayank Kumar
Abstract: A field experiment “Effect of bio-fertilizer and moisture conservation practices on growth and yield behavior of mustard under rainfed condition” was conducted during rabi season 2013-14 at soil conservation and water management farm, C. S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur. Twelve treatments were tested in three replicated Randomized Block Design. Results found that the maximum grain yield (16.66 q ha-1) was obtained in RDF (60:30:30) and organic mulch @ 4t ha-1 followed by combined application of 75% RDF + PSB and organic mulch @4t ha-1 was 14.43 q ha-1. The minimum grain yield (11.38 q ha-1) was received in control and dust mulch treatment. The application of RDF (60:30:30 ) + PSB + organic mulch @ 4 t ha-1 were also found higher gross income, net return and B: C ratio Rs 56712 ha-1, Rs 29712 ha-1 and 2.10, respectively followed by 75% RDF + PSB and organic mulch @ 4 t ha-1 the gross income, net return and B: C ratio Rs 49028 ha-1, Rs 22928 ha-1 and 1.87, respectively while the minimum gross income, net return and B:C ratio Rs 37740 ha-1, Rs 14440 ha-1 and 1.61 were obtained in dust mulch and without fertilizer (control).
