 85%
AREA & 58% PRODUCTION- RAJASTHAN
 FAST
GROWING DEEP ROOT SYSTEM –CAN BE
CULTIVATED IN ADVERSE CLIMATIC CONDITIONS
 LOW
FAT (0.7%) RICH PROTEIN (22-24%) SOURCE
MANAGEMENT STEPS FOR GOOD CROP
RMO 225
Early maturity (64-67
days), High seed yield
(6.0-7.5q/ha) as well as
fodder
(18-19
q/ha)

Field resistance against YMV,
Distinct resistance against
jassids and white flies
High protein content (26%)
and less cooking time

RMO-40(1994),
FMM-96 (1999)
CZM-1(1999)
CZM-3(2005)

Best performing varieties
in all agro-climatic zones
RMO-257 and RMO-435

SEED TREATMENT-MOST ECONOMIC AND EFFECTIVE



USE CARBEDEZIM @2.5G/KG SEED
USE RHIZOBIUM CULTURE @600G/ha.
 MAKE AVAILABILITY OF EFFECTIVE CULTURE-THROUGH
IMPROVING STORAGE & TRANSPORTATION
PERFECT POPULATION
PROPER SEED RATE 3-4 KG/ha
 PROPER SOWING METHOD-LINE SOWING
 USE THIOUREA 500PPM SOLUTION SEED SOAKING


APPLY BASIC FERTILIZERS 10Kg N & 20 Kg/P2O5/ha

PROPER PLANT PROTECTION
USE RESISTANT/TOLERANT VARIETIES
 SPARY MONOCROTOPHOS 0.04% SOLUTION THRICE
 DUSTING OF FENVELRATE 0.4% & METHYL PARATHION 2%


ONE HAND WEEDING & HOEING AT 25-30 DAYS AFTER SOWING
OTHERWISE USE WEEDICIDES [email protected] Kg ai/ha

SPRAY 500PPM SOLUTION OF THIOUREA AT VEGETATIVE AND
FLOWERING STAGE FOR DROUGHT TOLERENCE.

Intercropping of early maturing moth bean varieties with pearl millet
in 3:1 ratio is more remunerative.
