Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to study the effect of integrated nutrient management on economics of herb production in lucerne (<em>Medicago sativa </em>L.) at the farm field of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Konehalli, Tiptur Taluk, Tumkuru District during <em>kharif</em> and <em>rabi </em>seasons with nine treatments and four replication. The results revealed that the maximum fresh herb yield per hectare<strong> </strong>at first (193.52 q &amp; 178.70 q), second (207.41 q &amp; 213.89 q), third (209.26 q &amp; 217.13 q), fourth (210.65 q &amp; 218.98 q), fifth (211.11 q &amp; 216.20 q), sixth (210.18 q &amp; 208.33 q) and seventh harvest (208.33 q &amp; 200.00 q) were recorded respectively during <em>kharif</em> and <em>rabi</em> season and also maximum net return (Rs. 1,38,270 ha<sup>-1</sup> &amp; Rs. 1,38,675 ha<sup>-1</sup>) and B:C ratio (2.743 &amp; 2.749) were obtained respectively during <em>kharif</em> and <em>rabi</em> season with the application 50 % RDF + 25 % N through vermicompost + <em>Rhizobium</em> + PSB + VAM.
