Abstract
In a field experiment during the rainy season of 1991 at Hisar, Haryana, P. glaucum cv. HHB 60 was grown on the same plots after winter wheat. The application of 75% recommended NP rate through inorganic fertilizer + 25% NP through FYM to P. glaucum and 75% recommended NP through inorganic fertilizers to wheat gave the highest P. glaucum grain yield of 2.70 t/ha. This was not significantly different from treatments where the recommended NP rate (fertilizers) was applied to both crops (2.53 t) or where P. glaucum received 75% recommended NP rate through inorganic fertilizer + 25% NP through chopped dhaincha [Sesbania aculeata] and 75% recommended NP through inorganic fertilizers to wheat (2.33 t).
