Abstract: An experiment was carried out during kharif season of 2016 at Kasbe camp District: Raichur (Karnataka) at three location under the project of ‘Bhoo Samruddhi’ ICRISAT (International Crop Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics Agriculture), Hyderabad, for “Evaluation of soil physico-chemical properties, growth and yield of pigeonpea as influenced by method of planting and integrated nutrient management in Vertisols of Karnataka”. Economic viability of pigeonpea proved superior with application of vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1 along with RDF (20:50 of N and P2O5 kg ha-1), gypsum (100 kg ha-1), micro nutrient (ZnSO4 @ 25 kg ha-1& Borax @ 10 kg ha-1) and Rhizobium (as seed treatment), than all other nutrient combinations. Control (farmer’s practice, with only RDF i.e. 20:50 of N and P2O5 kg ha-1) registered the lowest value for economics compared to all nutrient combinations. Transplanted pigeonpea crop was superior over dibbled crop in case of method of planting. In transplanted pigeonpea crop the net returns and B:C ratio was maximum over dibbled crop.
