Ramanjot Kaur and Kamalesh Kumar
Experimentwas conducted at Agricultural Research Farm Dhablan of the G.S.S.D.G.S. Khalsa college Patiala, Punjab. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with 3 replications and 13 treatment combination of integrated nutrient Management. The soil of experimental field was clay in texture with pH 7.2 and contained organic carbon 0.80%, available nitrogen 374 kg/ha, available phosphorus 30.32 kg/ha and available K 120 kg/ha. All nutrients were applied in besal dose at one day before sowing. The crop was sown on 20th October, 2015. Application of Integrated nutrient Management significantly influenced the number plant height (cm) number of leaves plant-1 number of branches plant-1 fresh and dry weight (g) pant-1. The highest seed yield was recorded with the application of T7 (100% RDF + 2 t FYM ha-1 + 20 kg S ha-1 + 20 kg ZnSO4 ha-1 + 1 t vermicompost ha-1 + Azotobacter Seed treatment) was found significantly higher over rest treatments. ts.
