Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2013-2014 at Cotton Research Unit, Central Research Station, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola, Maharashtra, to study the effect of moisture conservation techniques and fertilizer management on yield and uptake of cotton under high density planting system. The experiment comprised of two factors, moisture conservation techniques and nutrient management. Moisture conservation techniques were opening of furrows, mulching with sunhemp after 30 DAS and flat bed sowing, while nutrient management comprised of 100 % RDF (60:30:30 NPK kg ha-1), 100% RDF Zinc @ 2.5 kg ha-1, 125% RDF and 125% RDF Zinc @ 2.5 kg ha-1. Twelve treatment combinations with four replications were executed in split plot design. The results of the experiment revealed that the mulching with sunhemp after 30 DAS and 125% RDF (75:37.5:37.5 NPK kg ha-1) Zinc @ 2.5 kg ha-1 recorded higher cotton stalk, seed cotton yield and higher nutrient uptake of N, P, K, S and Znby Cotton.
