Abstract

Two pulses namely Black Gram and Green Gram have been tested for the effect of organic
farming and it has been compared with the inorganic farming too. The morphological parameters
were considered and significant differences exist between the two methods. Panchagaviya and
biogas slurry not only increased the yield but also controlled the number of pests
