GROUNDNUT:

Recommendation for farmers (2018):

  • The farmers of Gujarat growing summer groundnut are advised to grow groundnut variety “Gujarat Groundnut 34” (GG 34) which has recorded 3715 kg/ha pod yield. This was 22.40, 21.69, 12.14 and 5.62% higher in pod yield than check varieties GG 6, GJG 31, TG 26 and TG 37A, respectively. This variety gave higher kernel yield (2525 kg/ha), oil yield (1334 kg/ha) and oil content (52.8%) than check varieties. It showed lower infestation of thrips and jassids as compared to all the checks. In this variety tikka and rust diseases did not appear during summer season. The variety is recommended for release in summer groundnut growing areas of Gujarat state.

 

  • This centre has contributed for release of groundnut varieties GG-2, GG-4, GG-5, GG-6 , GG-7, GG-11, GG-12 , GG-13, GG- 20, ICGS-30 as well as ICGS-44 at both national and state level.

 

  • This centre has also contributed for release of mustard Varieties GM-1, GM-2 and GM-3. The centre has contributed for release of castor hybrids GCH- 5, GCH-6, GCH-7, GCH-8, GACH-11 and GCH-9 as testing location.

 

 

 

 

CROP PRODUCTION:

Effect of vermi compost and fertilizers on yield of summer groundnut  (2010)

The farmers of middle Gujarat Agro-climatic Zone-III (AES-II) growing groundnut (GG 2) during summer are advised to apply vermi compost @ 1.0 t/ha along with 75% of recommended dose of fertilizer (18.75:37.5 kg NP/ha) as basal to get higher yield and net realization.

Irrigation management in onion (2010)

The farmers of middle Gujarat Agro-climatic Zone-III (AES–II) growing onion are advised to give ten irrigations (0.8 IW/CPE) through mini sprinkler to save 26% water over surface irrigation. The crop should be fertilized @ 100% recommended dose of N (75 kg/ha). The farmer should apply 50% of the total N as basal and remaining 50% in five equal splits at 10 days intervals through mini sprinkler. The fertigation should be started after 30 days of transplanting (DATP).

Irrigation scheduling should be as under: 

         The mini sprinkler system should be laid out at spacing of 2.5 X 2.5 m and operated at a pressure of 1.75 kg/cm2 for 5 hrs 30 min. (50 mm of water).

Integrated nutrient management in mustard (2011)

The farmers of AES II  of middle Gujarat agro-climatic zone growing mustard (G M-2) are advised to apply FYM @ 10 t/ha along with 50 kg N and 50 kg P2O5/ha in the form of urea and SSP, respectively, for getting higher yield and net income. Out of the total quantity of fertilizer, 25 kg N + 50 kg P2O5 should be applied at the time of sowing and remaining quantity of nitrogen should be applied at 30-35 days after sowing.

Testing of feasibility of drip irrigation with mulching in castor   (2011)

The farmers of AES II of middle Gujarat agro-climatic zone are advised to adopt drip irrigation system for castor to get higher yield and net return with 31% saving in irrigation water (0.6 FPE). For drip irrigation, castor crop should be sown in paired row (60-180 x 60 cm). The system should be laid out one month after cessation of monsoon at a lateral distance of 2.4 m (in paired row) and dripper (4 LPH) spaced at 0.6 m. The system should be operated at 1.2 kg/cm2 pressure for 1: 30 to 2: 1.5 hours an alternate day.  They are also advised to mulch their crop with paddy straw @5 t/ha just after installation of drip system for getting higher yield and net return.

Integrated nutrient management in cotton – wheat crop sequence (2014)

The farmers of middle Gujarat agro-climatic zone-III adopting Bt cotton (early group) - wheat crop sequence are advised to apply 10 t FYM/ha or 1.0 t castor cake/ha to both the crops along with 240 kg N/ha (75% RDF) to cotton and 90-45-0 kg N-P2O5-K2O/ha (75% RDF) to wheat for obtaining higher yield and net return.

 

Effect of drip irrigation and nitrogen on yield of Bt cotton (2014)

The farmers of middle Gujarat agro-climatic zone-III (AES-III) are advised to adopt drip irrigation method (0.8 PEF) and apply 100% RDN

                 (240 kg N/ha) in Bt cotton for obtaining higher yield and net return. System details :

Method of sowing and seed rate in wheat (2015-16)

The farmers of middle Gujarat agro climatic zone III growing wheat crop after transplanted rice under kyari land are advised for line sowing of wheat in dry seedbed by keeping higher seed rate @ 150 kg ha-1then apply irrigation after sowing for higher yield and net income.

Relay cropping of castor in legume crops (2015-16)

The farmers of middle Gujarat agro climatic zone are advised to adopt soybean-castor relay cropping system for getting castor equivalent higher yield and net return. Soybean cv. NRC-37 sown at 45 cm apart in first fortnight of July and castor sown in second fortnight of August wherein, skip one row for sowing of castor after two rows of soybean.

To study the castor based intercropping system preceding kharif crop under middle Gujarat conditions.  (2016-17)

The farmers of middle Gujarat agro climatic zone III growing castor are advised for growing three rows of chickpea at 30 cm for green pod as an intercrop, between two rows of castor sown at 150 cm line spacing for getting more castor equivalent yield and net income.

Performance of hybrid maize under different levels of nitrogen and phosphorus in rabi season (2017-18)

The farmers of middle Gujarat Agroclimatic zone III growing rabi hybrid GAYMH-1 and GAWMH-2 are advised to fertilize the crop with 150 kg Nitrogen and 40 kg P2O5 per hacter for securing higher grain yield with higher net return in Panchmahal District. While in Anand District maize hybrid GAYMH-1 should be grown and fertilize with 150 kg N and 60 kg P2O5 per ha. The nitrogen should be applied in four equal splits i.e., at basal, 4 leaves, 8 leaves and tasseling stage while P2O5 as basal.

  • 1st irrigation of 80 mm at transplanting. 
  • 2nd irrigation of 50 mm at 6 to 7 DATP. 
  • Subsequent six irrigations at 12-15 days interval. 
  • Remaining two irrigations at 8-10 days interval.
  •  
  • PLANT PROTECTION:
    • The Downey Mildew disease sick plot of the station has been identified at international & national level as HOT SPOT SICK PLOT and promising GMS lines Inbred of ICRISAT, AICRP network and state are being screened in both kharif & summer ecosystems.
    • Bio-efficacy of insecticides against pest complex in greengram (2019-20)
    • Seed treatment in greengram with imidacloprid 48 FS, 5 ml/kg and spray of flubendiamide 48 SC, 0.01% (2 ml/10 l water) at 50% floweringstage can effectively manage thrips, spotted pod borer and pod borer.
    • Contributed in the release of hybrids GCH 10 (Charutar Gold), Gujarat Hybrid Bajara 1129 (GHB 1129) and Gujarat Hybrid Bajara 1225 (GHB 1225).
