Abstract


The experiment was conducted at experimental field of department of Horticulture, Tirhut College of Agriculture, Dholi, Muzaffarpur, (Bihar) in Rabi season during 2007-2008 to 2009-2010. Combination of bio-fertilizer Azospirillum + inorganic nitrogen + FYM gave better performance as compared to alone application of bio-fertilizer Azospirillum, organic FYM inorganic nitrogen and other combination. The combination treatment (T1) as soil application of inorganic N (100%) of RDF + Azospirillum @ 15 kg ha-1 + FYM @ 5 t ha-1 gave the maximum number of branches per plant (7.30), number of pods per plant (74.00) and yield per plot (1.18) or per hectare (2.62 t ha-1) and increased the yield 91.24% over control and gave the maximum net profit Rs.45,100 ha-1 or benefit: cost (Rs.2.35) followed by treatment (T2) as soil application of inorganic N (75%) of RDF + Azospirillum @ 15 kg ha-1 + FYM @ 5 t ha-1 i.e. number of branches per plant (7.00), number of pods per plant (69.67) and yield per plot (1.09 kg/4.8m2) or yield per hectare (2.42 t ha-1) and increased the yield 76.64 per cent over control and found the maximum net profit Rs.39,172.00 ha-1 or benefit: cost (Rs.2.17).
