  • Varieties/hybrids (20 nos.) of castor were evaluated during Kharif 2012 and found all the entries differed significantly for all quantitative traits. Entry AVHT—I-1258 recorded higher yield 1620.25 kg/ha followed by AVHT-I-12571600.25 kg/ha and that of local check’s was 1041.27 kg/ha.

 

  • Few promising pre-released, pipe line and already state released hybrids/varieties of castor were tested at our centre and found to be differed significantly for all quantitative traits except no. of spikes/plant. The variety MCI-8 recorded higher yield (2170.23 kg/ha) and that of local check’s (48-1) was 1555.16 kg/ha. The yield of DCH-177 was 1200.66 kg/ha and DCH-519 was 891.33 kg/ha.

 

  • Evaluation of 17 sunflower hybrids showed that all the entries differed significantly for all quantitative traits. Entry IHT-945 recorded higher yield of 1921.93 kg/ha followed by IHT-942 (1844.87 kg/ha) as compared to the local check (1091.68 kg/ha).

 

  • IHT set-II comprised of 16 entries found to be differed significantly for all quantitative traits. Entry IHT-954 recorded higher yield (1971.92 kg/ha) followed by IHT-961 (1969.26 kg/ha) as compared to local check (1555.67 kg/ha).

 

  • Application of 20 kg sulphur/ha through gypsum recorded maximum seed yield (2484 kg/ha) followed by application of 20 kg sulphur/ha through SSP.

 

  • Maintaining weed free condition (3 weedings @ 20, 40 and 60 DAS) significantly recorded highest seed yield (1995 kg/ha) as compared to unweeded check (478 kg/ha). However, it was on par with the integration of pendimethalin (1 kg ai/ha) + inter cultivation at 40 DAS (1612 kg/ha) and farmers practice (one hand weeding 25 DAS + two inter cultivations 45 and 60 DAS) (1332 kg/ha).

 

  • Simultaneous sowing of castor + groundnut in 1:3 ratio significantly resulted in the maximum yield (3010 kg/ha) followed by simultaneous sowing of castor + groundnut (1:2 ratio) (2982 kg/ha) but were superior to sole castor at 120 x 60 cm spacing (1435 kg/ha).

 

  • Application of Fe and Zn micronutrients either through soil or foliar application did not affect the growth or seed yield of castor. However, foliar application of 0.5 per cent ZnSO4 at 50 and 90 DAS recorded maximum seed yield (2299 kg/ha) which was closely followed by foliar application of FeSO4 at 50 and 90 DAS (2219 kg/ha).

 

  • Power operated groundnut decorticator machine (M-6) could able to shell 326 kg pods/day with Rs.100, but the same labour could able to shell 100 kg pods/day, with UAHS Hand operated decorticator (M-1) withRs.100, in turn saving Rs. 226 per day.

 

  •  Power operated groundnut decorticator machine (M-4A) could able to shell 262 kg pods/day of worth Rs. 100 but the same labour could able to shell only 101 kg pods/day by using UAHS Hand operated decorticator(M-1),in turn saving Rs. 265 per/day.

 

  • The dry chilli yield was significantly superior with enriched bio-digested liquid manure at 125 kg N equivalent with or without Vermiwash/Panchagavya however, was on par with recommended fertilizers and FYM.

 

  • Application of Enriched bio-digested liquid manure @ 25 kg N equivalent per ha with 3 sprays of Panchagavya or vermiwash gave higher pod yield and bulb yield in onion as compared to rest of the treatments.

 

  • Highest ragi yield of 37.00 q/ha was recorded in STCR (60 q/ha) treatment followed by STCR target of 50 ha (36.22 q ha). However, all these yields were far below the target fixed. Highest VCR of 6.06 was recorded in STCR target of 50 q/ha with integrated approach. Lower VCR of 1.77 was recorded in recommended package of practice treatment.

 

  • Highest fodder yield of maize was recorded in high fertility (L3) strip (29.09 t/ha) and the lowest (12.12 t/ha) in low fertility strip (L1). Similarly, after harvest soil analysis for NPK, indicated a gradual increase in available NPK levels form L1 strip to L3, indicating the development of fertility gradient in the same field.

 

  • Among the 6 entries, entry CSRG-1443 recorded significantly the highest marketable yield of 54.68 q/ha followed by CSRG-1138 (51.40 q/ha). However, the lowest marketable yield and total of 37.85 and 43.50 q/ha respectively was produced by the entry CSRG-1140.

 

  • Among 25 onion entries tested for their performance the entry CSKO-1170 recorded significantly different and highest marketable yield (284.43 q/ha), total yield of 313.31 q/ha and with high per cent of marketable yield (90.77%) than all the entries. The lowest marketable yield and total yield of 122.87 q/ha were recorded by the entry CSKO-1155.

 

  • The sunflower variety/hybrid SMLHT-Kh-12-05 recorded significantly higher seed yield of 1316 kg/ha followed by hybrid KBSH-53 (1298 kg/ha) than the check hybrid KBSH-44 (1001 kg/ha).
