Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Fatehpur-Shekhawati (Sikar), Rajasthan, during 1997–98 and 1998–99. Branches/plant, pods/plant, seeds/pod and test weight of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) significantly increased with increasing dose of P up to 80 kg P2O5/ha. These characters were marginally influenced by S application. Biofertilizers inoculation significantly increased branches/plant during 1998–99 and seeds/pod during both the years. Seed, straw and biological yields of fenugreek also increased significantly with phosphorus applied up to 80 kg P2O5/ha. Yield estimates of fenugreek also responded significantly to S application up to 100 kg/ha. Dual inoculation with Rhizobium + PSB significantly increased the seed and biological yields during both the years and straw yield during the first year. Phosphorus and sulphur applied to fenugreek significantly increased the grain, stover and biological yields of succeeding pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br. emend. Stuntz]. Seed treatment of fenugreek with biofertilizer did not influence the grain, straw and biological yields of succeeding pearl millet crop.
