To find out the effect of seed treatment and foliar nutrition on uptake of nutrients in Field pea under Utera system


Tarun, Krishna Kumar, DK Chandrakar, Anil Kumar Jangade

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2017-18 at Instructional cum Research Farm, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishvavidhyalaya, Raipur, Chhattisgarh. Utera or paira cropping (relay cropping) is age old double cropping system under the rainfed conditions in which succeeding utera crop is directly broadcasted in the standing rice crop after the flowering stage (Sharma et al., 2004). Field pea are a valuable source of protein for both man and animals. The majority of pea proteins are storage proteins, or globulins, and the amino acid profile of these proteins determines their nutritional value. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design having the combination of twelve treatments and three replications. The treatment consisted of two seed treatment and six foliar nutrients spray. Seed treatment, S2: Seed treatment with Rhizobium + PSB + fungicide + Sodium molybdate @ 0.5 g kg-1 seed recorded higher growth character, yield attributes and seed yield than with S1: Seed treatment with Rhizobium + PSB + fungicide under rainfed rice - utera condition. As regards to foliar nutrients F5: 0.5% NPK (19:19:19) spray at branching and 15 days after 1st spray was found superior among other foliar nutrient sprays in respect of growth characters, yield attributes and yield under rain fed rice - utera system.
