Abstract: The field experiment was conducted during kharif and rabi season of 2015-16 and 2016-17 on clayey soil at the farm of AICRP on Integrated Farming Systems, VNMKV, Parbhani to find out the suitable land configuration, growth regulators and integrated nutrient management .Treatment consists of twenty four treatment combinations comprising three land configurations and two foliar applications in main plot whereas, four integrated nutrient levels in sub plot. Main plot Land Configuration L1:Flat bed L2:Ridges and furrow L3: Broad Bed Furrow Foliar Application F1: Foliar application of Mepiquat chloride @ 100 ppm at 50% flowering F2:Foliar application of Cycocel @ 50 ppm at 50% flowering Sub plot Integrated Nutrient Management N1:100% RDF + Rhizobium + PSB N2:75% RDF + 2.5 t FYM ha-1 + Rhizobium + PSB N3:50% RDF + 5 t FYM ha-1 + Rhizobium + PSB N4: RDN through 1/3 FYM + 1/3 Vermicompost + 1/3 Neem cake + Rhizobium + PSB. The treatments were assigned in split plot design. foliar application of Mepiquat chloride @ 100 ppm at 50% flowering stage and application of 50% RDF + 5 t FYM ha-1 + Rhizobium + PSB grown on broad bed furrow obtaining higher seed and straw yields of better quality and maximum economic returns by sustaining soil fertility of pigeonpea.
