|Title:||SITE-SPECIFIC NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT IN SOYBEAN UNDER MID-HILL CONDITIONS OF HIMACHAL PRADESH|
|Abstract:||A field experiment was conducted during the rainy (kharif) season of 2018 at CSK Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya, Palampur, to study the effect of sitespecific nutrient management on growth, yield and profitability of soybean (Glycine max L). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design comprising of seven treatments [T1 - N43P43K50 (SSNM), T2 - N43P43K0 (T1-K omission), T3 - N43P0K50 (T1- P omission), T4 - N0P43K50 (T1- N omission), T5 - N20P60K40 (RDF), T6 - FYM@5t/ha (Farmer‟s Practice) and T7 -N0P0K0 (control)]. Experimental site was silty clay loam in texture, acidic in reaction, low in available nitrogen, and medium in available phosphorus and potassium. Significantly higher plant height, dry matter accumulation, absolute growth rate, relative growth rate, crop growth rate and dry matter efficiency were recorded in T1 which was at par with T5 and T6. The highest seed yield (1988kg/ha), gross return (Rs 82661/ha) and net return (Rs 45864/ha), benefit cost ratio (2.25) and profitability (Rs 367/ha/day) was recorded in T1. Omission of nutrients significantly reduced yield and profitability of soybean. The treatment, N43P43K50 proved to be the best treatment for enhancing yield and profitability of soybean under mid-hill conditions of Himachal Pradesh.|
