ABSTRACT

 

The present study was conducted under field condition during kharif sorghum and rabi chickpea cropping system at ARI Main Farm, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, India. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three main treatments and three sub-treatments, replicated thrice. There were 9 treatments which included application of three different organic manures as a main treatmens viz., Farm Yard Manure (FYM), Vermicompost (VC) and Neem Seed Cake (NSC) and their combinations with 0%, 50% and 100% RDF as sub plot treatments. Manures were applied at recommended doses (5 t ha-1for FYM and 2.5 t ha-1 for VC and NSC). The data was recorded for two years and two seasons (kharif and rabi) to evaluate the economics of the integrated nutrient management as low cost production cropping system. Among the different integrated nutrient management, the highest net returns and cost benefit ratio during both years 2012 and 2013 of experiments were registered by VC+100 % RDF  92270, 101161 net returns and 2.68, 2.39 cost benefit ratio, FYM +100 % RDF reported the second net returns and cost benefit ratio after VC+100 % RDF, which are  64257, 89126 net returns, 1.41 and 1.94 cost benefit ratio. The results also showed that VC + 50 % RDF recorded the third role among the integrated nutrient management treatments 81280, 88740 net returns, 2.43, 2.14 as cost benefit ratio frequently, while NSC either sole or integrated with RDF resulted in the least net returns and cost benefit ratios.

 

Key words: B:C ratio, kharif sorghum, rabi chickpea, cropping system, Rajendranagar.
