Abstract:

The present investigation on “Effect of moong bean as green manuring and residue incorporation on growth, productivity of wheat" was conducted at Research Farm of Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo, Bathinda during May 2019 to April 2021. Nine treatments were used in RCBD design with three replication in this experiment. The treatments were: T1: Moong bean (Wheat residue incorporated)-Basmati Rice-Wheat (residue incorporated), T2: Moong bean (Wheat residue incorporated)-Basmati Rice-Wheat (partial burning), T3: Moong bean- Basmati rice-Wheat (residue incorporated), T4: Moong bean- Basmati rice-Wheat (partial burning), T5: Basmati rice (wheat residue incorporated)-Wheat (residue incorporated), T6: Basmati rice (wheat residue incorporated)-Wheat (partial burning), T7: Basmati rice-Wheat (residue incorporated), T8: Basmati rice-Wheat (partial burning), T9: Control (basmati rice-wheat).

It has been found that the loss of N was less in those treatments where green manuring along with incorporation of residues (T1, T2, T3 and T4). The treatments with crop residues incorporation (rice or wheat residue or both) + green manuring (T1 to T4) or crop residues (rice or wheat residue or both) (T5 to T8) or green manuring (T1) proved highly efficient in respect of economic return in of B: C ratio and total energy output when compared with control (Ti), however, integration of both the residues along with green manuring (T1) recorded the highest values of plant height, tiller density, dry weight, number of effective tiller m-1 row length, number of grains ear-1, test weight, grain yield, straw yield and biological yield of wheat. Incorporation of residue was the best in terms of improved soil health, increased wheat yield, monetary return and B: C ratio.
