Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at the Crop Research Centre, School of Agriculture, ITM University Gwalior (M.P.) during the Kharif season of 2023 to evaluate the maximizing productivity and profitability of green gram (Vigna radiata L.) through fertility levels and biofertilizers. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with 10 treatment combinations and each treatment was replicated thrice. The results revealed that the application of 100% RDF + RSI (10 g kg⁻¹) + PSB & KSB (5 kg ha⁻¹ each) had significantly improved the growth attributes viz., Plant height, number of branches, dry matter accumulation, Leaf area index and number of nodules plant⁻¹ of green gram over rest of the treatments. However, the higher grain yield (1424.71 kg ha-1), straw yield (3206.13 kg ha­­⁻¹) and biological (4630.84 kg ha­­⁻¹) yield was recorded with the treatment 100% RDF + RSI (10 g kg⁻¹) + PSB & KSB (5 kg ha⁻¹ each) which was being at par with 100% RDF + RSI (10 g kg⁻¹) + PSB 5 kg ha⁻¹ soil application, while the lowest grain yield and straw yield were recorded in control.
