Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during the year 2011-2012 at Krishi Vigyan Kendra- Bandipora, SKUAST-Kashmir to study Effect of inoculations of Rhizobium leguminosarum on germination & yield of Field Pea (Pisum sativum) under temperate conditions of Kashmir with four treatments of Rhizobium @ 0 Kg/ha (Control), 1.25 Kg/ha, 2.50 Kg/ha and 2.75 Kg/ha through inoculations of Rhizobium leguminosarum. The significant results were obtained with Application of Rhizobium at 3.75 Kgs/ha resulted in Approx. 80% germination & the maximum yield viz; 14.0 qt/ha was recorded as compared to the Farmers Practice where farmers do not use inoculations of Rhizobium. Farmer was satisfied so far as Subsequent germination & yield obtained were redressed during the conduct of on farm trial. The Farmers were suggested for applications of rhizobium inoculations on the farmers field As far as Economics is concerned, the farmers practice obtained the Net Return of (Profit) in Rs. 3692 Rs / ha as compared with the application of Rhizobium @ 3.75 Kgs/ha obtained the Net Return of (Profit) in Rs. 28667/ha with B:C ratio of 3.15.
