The experiment was conducted Anbil Dharmalingam Agricultural College and Research Institute, Thiruchirapalli on red gram with the objective of to study the effect of various management techniques on red gram yield under alkali soil. The treatments included in this experiment are Daincha as green manure incorporated at 45 DAS @6.25 t ha-1, 125 % Recommended dose of N, Daincha 125 % N, sub soiling at 45 cm depth. TNAU micro nutrient mixture @ 12.5 kg ha-1, 125 % N sub soiling TNAU micronutrient mixture and 125 % N Sub soiling TNAU micronutrient mixture Daincha were compared with control. The results of pooled analysis revealed that that 125 % Recommended dose of N Sub soiling TNAU micronutrient mixture @ 12.5 kg ha-1 Daincha recorded higher biometric characters, yield attributes (number of pods plant-1, number of seeds pod-1 , test weight) and yield (456 kg ha-1) with higher soil organic carbon content (0.24 per cent) and available N (282.5 kg ha-1). The B: C ratio (1.63) was also recorded higher under the same treatment.
