A field experiment was conducted during 2012-13 at Department of Horticulture, JNKVV, Jabalpur (M.P.). The present study revealed that fenugreek cv. RMT–1 responded best in terms of yield and its attributing traits. Treatment T6 (10 t FYM + 50% N + Rhizobium) was found significantly superior as compared to other treatments. Highest morphological characters i.e. plant height, number of branches per plant and dry weight plant-1) and yield attributes i.e. number of pods plant-1, pod length, number of seeds plant-1, test weight, vegetative yield plant-1 and seed yield plant-1, per plot and ha-1) were recorded in T6 (10 t FYM + 50% N+ Rhizobium) followed by T5 (10 t FYM + 50% Nitrogen). The earliest first flowering, 50% flowering and maturity were recorded under treatment T3 (20 t FYM). Nitrogen content and uptake was observed significantly higher with the application of T12 (5 t Poultry manure + Rhizobium) whereas, uptake of phosphorus was maximum with T12 (5 t Poultry manure + Rhizobium). Potassium content (seed and straw) and uptake increased with application of T14 (5 t PM + 50% N + Rhizobium). It is revealed from the data that a significantly maximum seed yield of 23.48 q/ha was recorded in variety RMT–1 in treatment combination T6 (10 t FYM + 50% N + Rhizobium) along with net return of ` 65,273/ha and cost benefit ratio of 1: 3.28.
