Abstract

A field experiment conducted in randomized block design with three replications during summer seasons of the years 2010 and 2011 revealed higher yield attributes and green pod yield (15.03 t ha-1) and straw yield (17.28 t ha-1) of clusterbean with irrigation at 100 % CPE along with fertigation of 60 kg phosphorus and 60 kg potash ha-1. It also recorded higher net return (`102314 ha-1) and BCR (2.99) while, recommended 20-40 kg NP ha-1 through surface irrigation produced 9.33 t ha-1 pod and 10.73 t ha-1 straw yields  and ` 56105 ha-1 net returns.
