Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2015-16 and 2016-17 at Soil Conservation and Water Management Farm of C.S.A.U.A & T., Kanpur to study the effect of integrated nutrient management and irrigation on growth parameters and yield of chandrasur (Lepidium sativum L.) under different moisture conservation practices. The result revealed that growth attributes viz., plant height, number of branches plant-1, fresh and dry weight plant-1 and days to flowering and yield viz., seed, stover, biological, oil yield and harvest index of chandrasur was significantly increased with irrigation applied at 35 and 70 days after sowing as compared to irrigation given at 35 and 60 days after sowing and irrigation applied at 35 days after sowing during both the years of study. Application of 75% N through fertilizer + 25% N through vermicompost + PSB produced significantly highest all growth attributes and yield of chandrasur than the application 75% N through fertilizer + 25% N through FYM and 100% N through fertilizer in the respective years of study. Among the different moisture conservation practices, significantly higher growth parameters viz., plant height, number of branches plant-1, fresh and dry weight plant-1 and days to flowering and yields viz., seed, stover, biological, oil yield and harvest index of chandrasur produced significantly higher with weeding and hoeing + organic residue mulch @ 4 t ha-1 than organic residue mulch @ 4 t ha-1 and control during 2015-16 and 2016-17.
