Abstract: The field experiment was conducted at Vegetable Improvement Scheme, Central Experimental Station, Wakawali during Rabi season 2013-2014 to study the “Effect of different fertilizer briquettes on yield, nutrient uptake and soil fertility status of Dolichos bean (Dolichos lablab L.) In lateritic soils of Konkan” The field experiment was laid out in randomized block design comprising of eight treatments replicated thrice. The present study was formulated to reduce the fertilizer use by using briquette form. Amongst all fertilizer briquettes, UB-10:26:26 briquettes found significant in term of growth attributing characters and yield of Dolichos bean. It was observed that the application of one UB-10:26:26 briquette in between two plants at sowing was found significant in respect of yield and recorded higher plant height and number of pods per plants as well as higher total N, P and K uptake. The available nutrient status such as organic carbon, (N, P and K) in soil after harvest was found to be improved due to application of UB-10:26:26 briquettes one in between two plants as compared to other treatments. In general, it is concluded that the application of UB-10:26:26 briquettes @ one briquette in between two plants was found promising in enhancing the green pod yield of Konkan bhushan variety in lateritic soils of Konkan. 50 per cent recommended dose of NPK fertilizer was reducing by the application of nutrients in the form of UB-10:26:26 briquettes.
