Abstract: A two years field study was carried out at Norman E. Borlaug Crop Research Centre, GBPUA&T, Pantnagar, Uttarakhand to evaluate the productivity and profitability of Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan) in pigeonpea based cropping system under different integrated nutrient management practices in Tarai region of Uttarakhand. Results reveals that Maximum grain yield, biological yield, harvest index of pigeonpea and pigeonpea equivalent yield as well as net return and B:C ratio was recorded in Pigeonpea + Urd cropping system than sole and Pigeonpea + Maize cropping system. Application of Recommended Dose of Fertilizer + vermicompost @ 2.5 t/ha found as effective as Recommended Dose of Fertilizer + Farm Yard Manure @ 5.0 t/ha and improved all the growth and yield parameters of pigeonpea than Recommended Dose of Fertilizer alone. However, highest net return was obtained under Recommended Dose of Fertilizer + Farm Yard Manure @ 5.0 t/ha compared to Recommended Dose of Fertilizer alone.
