SUMMARY

A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Research Area, CCS HAU Hisar to study the effect of integrated nutrient supply on productivity of pearl millet – wheat cropping system during 2015-16 and 2016-17 in randomized block design with treatments viz. RDF (Recommended dose of fertilizers) through inorganic source, RDF through inorganic source + Azotobactor + PSB, Recommended N through vermicompost, 75% recommended dose of nutrients through inorganic source + 25% N from vermicompost + Azotobactor + PSB, 50% recommended dose of nutrients through inorganic source + 50% N from vermicompost + Azotobactor + PSB, 25% recommended dose of nutrients through inorganic source + 75% N from vermicompost + Azotobactor + PSB both in pearlmillet and wheat crop. In pearlmillet as well as in wheat crop RDF + Azotobactor + PSB through inorganic source produced highest yield attributes and yield but it did not differ significantly from the treatment where RDF through inorganic source was applied. Application of 75% RDF through inorganic source + 25% N from vermicompost + Azotobactor + PSB produced significantly higher yield over 50% recommended dose of nutrients through inorganic source + 50% N from vermicompost + Azotobactor + PSB and 25% recommended dose of nutrients through inorganic source + 75% N from vermicompost + Azotobactor + PSB in respective crops.

Key words:Pearlmillet, wheat, cropping system, PSB, Azotobactor and yield
