 ABSTRACT

A field experiment was conducted during kharif and rabi seasons of 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Rajendrapur Farm, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Navsari Agricultural University, Waghai (Dist.Dangs), Gujarat to study the residual effect of integrated nutrient management in little millet on production potential of succeeding green gram crop under little millet-green gram cropping system. The treatment consisted of integrated nutrient management viz. T1 – 100% RDF, T2 – 50% RDN through chemical fertilizer + 50% RDN through biocompost, T3 – 50% RDN through chemical fertilizer + 50% RDN through vermicompost, T4 – 75% RDN through chemical fertilizer + 25% RDN through biocompost and T5 – 75% RDN through chemical fertilizer + 25% RDN through vermicompost to little millet in kharif season as main plot treatments replicated four times in randomized block design. During rabi season each main plot treatment was split into four sub plot treatments with four levels of recommended dose of fertilizers viz. S1 -control,   S2 - 50% RDF and S3 – 75% RDF, and S4 – 100% RDF to green gram resulting in twenty treatment combinations replicated four times in split plot design. The experiment was conducted on same site without changing the randomization of the treatment for the successive year to assess the residual effects. Thus, application of 75% RDF reported promising effect on growth, yield and yield attributing characters of green gram in little millet-green gram cropping sequence under South Gujarat condition. 

Key words:  Green gram, Cropping sequence, Seed yield
