Response Of The Pigeonpea (Cajanus Cajan (L.) Millspaugh) To Nitrogen Application And Temporary Waterlogging uri icon

abstract

  • Short-duration pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millspaugh, cv. ICPL 87))responded to applied N by increasing its shoot and rwt growth in a Vertisol field at ICRISATCenter in India. However. growth of shoot and roots was impaired and N concentration in leafwas decreased by short-ten (three days) waterlogging. During the recovery phasepigeonpa developed new adventitious rwts around the base of tap root with new nodules.Therefore waterlogged pigeonpea had higher total nodule activity than control plants andthere were no differences in N concentration in ieaf at 40 days after the termination ofwaterlogging
