Abstract: The field experiment was conducted at MARS, UAS, Dharwad during kharif, 2014 and 2015 with 6 treatments consisting of FYM at 5 t ha-1, sunflower residue used as mulch, sunflower residue with compost culture applied 15 days before sowing, incorporation of chopped sunflower residue applied 15 days before sowing, sunflower residue decomposed for 75 days with compost culture, sunflower residue + FYM at 5 t ha -1 applied 15 days before sowing. Pooled analysis indicated that among the different management practices sunflower residue decomposed for 75 days with compost culture recorded significantly higher seed yield, number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant and total dry matter(1070 kg/ha, 6.33, 27.6 and13.79g, respectively) compared to others and they were on par with the FYM at 5t/ha (1021 kg/ha, 5.77, 27.2 and 12.63g, respectively).Similar trend was observed with dehydrogenase activity, and available nutrient status of soil.
