Abstract:
A field investigation entitled “Consequences of various tillage managment practices on soil physical properties and yield of soybean” was conducted at research farm of AICRP on Weed Management, Department of Agronomy, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (Maharashtra) during the year 2016-17 on medium deep black soil. The experiment was laid out in strip plot design with three replications. There were eighteen treatment combinations consisting six tillage and crop management practices. On the basis of results obtained in the present investigation, the soil physical properties i.e rate of infiltration, soil moisture content and hydraulic conductivity were significantly improved with deep tillage consisting of 2 Harrowing by tyne cultivator + 1 Harrowing by blade harrow + planking + Residue (CTR). The next best treatment that improved physical properties of soil was that of 2 Harrowing by tyne cultivator + 1 Harrowing by blade harrow + planking (CT). Zero tillage and minimum tillage treatments were found inferior in improving soil physical properties. On the basis of results the values of plant growth, yield attributes and yield of soybean were significantly increased with tillage treatment of 2 Harrowing by tyne cultivator + 1 Harrowing by blade harrow + planking + Residue (CTR) as compared to other tillage treatments.
