Abstract:
An investigation was undertaken to evaluate the impact of different crop residues on late jute seed yield and organic matter content of soil. The plant height, number of branch/plant, number of pod/plant, number of seeds/pod and seed yield/plant were significantly increased with different crop residues. The performance in seed yield were dry jute leaves (89.30%) > lentil straw (87.77%) wheat straw (43.28%) > compost (35.35%) > rice straw (32.740%) > saw-dust (16.91%) over the control. The resources increased the soil organic matter content in soil by 24.59, 22.92, 26.22, 19.67, 29.51 and 30.33% respectively over the control indicating the enrichment of soil health. In correlation studies it was observed that the jute seed yield parameters, the seed yield was highly correlated with plant height, number of branches/plant and number of pods/plant.
