Green manuring with Sesbania aculeata is a widely investigated practice in cereal-based cropping systems but adoption of this technology is low on farmers’ fields because of some practical and economic considerations. Dual-purpose legumes such as cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) and greengram (Vigna radiata) providing economic produce as well as stover for incorporation are a viable alternative for effecting N economy and enhancing crop productivity. Direct and residual effects of different legumes… CONTINUE READING
