Author(s): Annu Kanwar, SR Sharma, KR Yadav, VK Yadav and Paru Panwar

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2012 on loamy sand soil, to study the Effect of organic and inorganic nutrition on symbiotic efficiency and yield of vegetable cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.].The treatments consisted of four levels of organic manure (Control, FYM @ 10 t ha-1,vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1 and poultry manure @ 5 t ha-1) and five levels of inorganic nutrients (Control, Elemental sulphur @ 20 kg ha-1, Elemental sulphur @ 20 kg ha-1+ Ammonium molybdate @ 1.0 kg ha-1, Elemental sulphur @ 20 kg ha-1+ Ammonium molybdate @ 1.0 kg ha-1 +Ferrous sulphate@ 50 kg ha-1, Elemental sulphur @ 20 kg ha-1+ Ammonium molybdate @ 1.0 kg ha-1 +Ferrous sulphate@ 50 kg ha-1 +Zinc sulphate @ 25 kg ha-1) were applied to the vegetable cowpea var. RCV-7. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design and replicated thrice. The resulted revealed that the application of vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1 and combined application of S+Mo+Fe were found significantly superior in increasing the number of total and effective nodule, leghemoglobin content in root nodules, chlorophyll content in leaves, green pod yield per ha-1 over control.
