A field experiments was conducted under All India Coordinated Sorghum Improvement Project (AICSIP) at 6 locations during the rainy seasons of 2009 and 2010 in a split-plot design having 3 tillage systems in main plots and 4 nutrient-management practices in subplots with 3 replications, to find out their effects on productivity, profitability and energetics of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]. Conventional tillage resulted in higher grain yield (3.12 t/ha), N, P and K uptake, net returns (`23.5 × 103/ha) and output energy (251 × 103 MJ/ha) than reduced and minimum tillage systems. Application of recommended dose of nutrients (80: 40: 40 N: P2O5, K2O kg/ha) through inorganic fertilizers proved significantly superior in terms of grain yield (3.32 t/ha), net returns (26.6 × 103/ha) and output energy (`267 × 103 MJ/ha) over rest of the treatments. © 2014, Indian Society of Agronomy.

Field experiments were conducted under All India Coordinated Sorghum Improvement Project (AICSIP) at 6 locations during rainy seasons of 2009 and 2010 in a split plot design having 3 fertility levels, viz., control (0:0:0 kg/ ha of N: P2 O5 :K2 O), recommended dose of nutrients-RDF (80:40:40 kg/ha of N: P2 O5 : K2 O) and 150% of RDF (120:60:60 kg/ha of N: P2 O5 : K2 O) in main-plots, while 8 sorghum cultivars including 3 hybrids (‘CSH 14’, ‘CSH 16’, ‘CSH 23’) and 5 varieties (‘SPV 462’, ‘CSV 15’, ‘CSV 17’, ‘CSV 23’, ‘SPV 1616’) constituted the sub-plot to find out their effects on productivity and nutrient-use efficiency in rainy-season grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]. Results revealed that increasing levels of fertility up to 150% RDF significantly increased the grain yield (3.28 t/ha), nutrient uptake, net returns (25.97 ×103 /ha) and benefit: cost ratio (1.79) as compared to control. Hybrids produced 20.6% higher grain yield over varieties. Among hybrids ‘CSH 16’ (3.07 t/ha) and among varieties ‘SPV 462’ (2.56 t/ha) produced the maximum grain yields. The nutrient-use efficiency (NUE) was higher in hybrids (6.66 kg grain/kg NPK) than the varieties (5.54 kg grain/kg NPK). Increasing fertility levels from 100% RDF to 150% RDF increased the NUE of all the test hybrids, but decreased the efficiency of varieties except ‘CSV 17’. © 2015 Indian Society of Agronomy.

The present study was conducted in Nanded District of Marathwada region of Maharashtra state. The Nanded and Ardhapur talukas of Nanded district were purposively selected for the study. Sample of 120 respondents was purposively selected, 60 respondents from each taluka on the basis of their involvement in Adoption of management practices of drip irrigation for banana in Nanded district. The respondents were interviewed with the help of well structured interview schedule. The findings revealed that majority of the respondents had medium level of Knowledge and Adoption.

Measurement of productivity growth is very essential to take appropriate policy decisions for the development of the agriculture sector. Present study measures total factor Productivity growth of pigeon pea crop in sub-sector of Maharashtra State. The Tornqvist Theil chained Divisia index approach was applied for the measurement of total factor productivity using output and input data of pigeon pea crop. Farm-level data on yield, level of inputs use and their prices for the period 1989-90 to 2008-09 were taken from the state funded cost of cultivation scheme. The multi-variable model was utilized to know the determinants of total factor productivity growth taking total factor productivity as dependent variable. Beside double sown area, other explanatory variables included total amount of loan, net cropped area, area under irrigation, area under high yielding variety, annual rainfall, villages electrified, number of tractors, number of pump sets, road density. The results indicated that total factor productivity growth was positive in pigeon pea crop in sub sector of Maharashtra State. Area under irrigation, area under high yielding varieties, rainfall, and road density has positive and significant impact on total factor productivity of pigeon pea crop in sub- sector. Source
