Research Recommendations : (2018-19)

Recommendation for farmers

Recommendation No. 1

Title:  Effect of N, P and K fertilizers on growth, yield and nutrients uptake by brinjal.

            The farmers of South Saurashtra Agro-climatic Zone growing brinjal under medium black calcareous soil in late kharif season are recommended to apply nitrogen @ 125 kg/ha in four equal splits (Basal, 25, 50 and 75 days after transplanting), P2O5 @ 50 kg/ha and K2O @ 50 kg/ha as basal for achieving higher yield and net return.

Recommendation for Scientific Community : 

Recommendation No. 1

Title: Establishment of critical limit of sulphur for green gram crop in medium blackcalcareous soils.

          For recommending sulphur application to green gram crop grown in calcareous soils of Saurashtra, STLs of Gujarat should consider the critical limit of 13.8 ppm in soil and 0.395 per cent in green gram plant at 45 DAS.

Recommendation No. 2

Title: Soil test based fertilizers application for targeted yield of soybean in Saurashtra region of Gujarat.

          The soil testing laboratories are informed that the nutrients requirement for production of one quintal soybean seed was assessed as 5.65, 0.91 and 2.53 kg; N, P2O5 and K2O, respectively. The fertilizer prescription equations are: for N: [FN = (7.87 x T) - (0.50 x SN) - (0.39 x FYM)], P: [FP2O5 = (3.10 x T) - (1.87 x SP) - (0.17 x FYM)] and K:[FK2O: = (4.70 x T) - (0.20 x SK) - (0.19 x FYM)] with FYM. Targeted yield concept could effectively be adopted up to 20 q/ha for site specific fertilizer recommendation to achieve high yields of soybean in the medium 48 black calcareous soils of Saurashtra region of Gujarat.

Recommendation No. 3

Title: Effect of saline irrigation water on wheat crop.

          It is information for scientific community especially plant breeders that wheat varieties GW 366 and KRL 19 recorded higher mean salinity index (86.7 and 79.8 %), comparable mean seed yield (18.4 and 14.4 g/pot), minimum yield decline (29.38 and 34.89 %) at EC 8.0 dS/m and for 50 % yield reduction at EC 12.24 and 10.54 dS/m, respectively as well as lower Na/K ratio in grain (GW 366) and straw (KRL19), hence found more tolerant as compared to GW 451 and GW 463.

Recommendation No. 4

Title:  Effect of saline irrigation water on tomato crop.

           It is information for scientific community especially plant breeders that tomato varieties Anand Tomato 3 and Gujarat Tomato 1 recorded higher mean fruit yield (219.3 and 213.1 g/pot), higher mean salinity index (80.8 and 76.9 %), minimum yield decline (29.84 and 37.84 %) at 8.0 dS/m and for 50 % yield reduction at EC 11.92 and 10.21 dS/m, respectively, hence found more salt tolerant compared to Gujarat Tomato 2 and Junagadh Tomato-3.

Experiential Learning Programme :
