Abstract

A field experiment was conducted to assess the effect of integrated nutrient management system on kharif forage sorghum (cv. Phule Amruta)-chick pea (cv. Digvijay) cropping sequence on vertisol during 2006-2007. The results indicated that significantly higher values were observed for growth and yield attributes with highest grain and straw yield (22.4 qha-1 and 24.2 qha-1) of succeeding chick pea cv. Digvijay in rabi season, due to the residual effect of application of 25% N through FYM+25% N through vermicompost+50% N through RDF applied to preceding forage sorghum in kharif season followed by 100% RDF (21.2 qha-1 and 23.6 qha-1) application, respectively. Significantly lowest grain yield (13.3 qha-1) and straw yield (16.0 qha-1) was recorded by absolute control. Residual effect of 25% N through FYM+25% N through vermicompost+50% N through RDF applied to forage sorghum also recorded significantly highest value for nutrient uptake, gross returns (Rs. 51655/ha), net returns (Rs. 32364/ha) and maximum value for benefit:cost ratio (2.60) of succeeding chickpea compared to the application of reduced or higher value of RDF in combination with the organic manures or alone inorganic fertilizer to preceding forage sorghum.
