Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Allahabad (UP) during Kharif season of 2015 and 2016 to study the ”Effect of nitrogen levels, row ratio and row direction on growth, yield attributes and yield of pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan L.). The experiment was laid out in FRBD with 18 treatments each replicated thrice. A perusal of the pooled data of both the years revealed that treatment T13 (Pigeon pea +baby corn in 2:2 ratio+100% RDN to pigeon pea+75% RDN to baby corn in East-West direction gave maximum values of growth and yield of pigeon pea viz. Plant height (165.71cm), and post-harvest observation viz. number of pods/plant (122.99), grain yield (18.04q/ha) and harvest index (30.04%) while dry weight/plant (157.34g), number of nodules (11.23), total no. of branches /plant (45.00), no. of grains/pod (3.63), test weight (72.48g), stalk yield (45.63q/ha) and protein content in grain (23.26%) was recorded in treatment T4-(Pigeon pea +baby corn (1:1) +100% RDN to both crops +East-West row direction).
