The field experiments were conducted during kharif 2013, 2014 and 2015 at Research Farm of Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Jhabua to study the effect of nutrient management practices on yields, nutrient content and economics of the soybean grown under rainfed condition of Jhabua hill. The experiment laid out in randomized block design with nine nutrient levels viz., T1-control, T2- vermicompost (5t/ha), T3-FYM (10 t/ha), T4-Recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF=20 N, 60 P and 40 K kg/ha), T5-50% RDF + Rhizobium + PSB, T6- 50% RDF + 50% vermicompost, T7-50% RDF + 25% vermicompost + Rhizobium + PSB, T8- Rhizobium culture + PSB and T9- 50% vermicompost + Rhizobium + PSB. Results revealed that application of application of 50% RDF + 50% vermicompost (T6) gave significantly highest seed yield (22.62 q/ha), straw yield (23.86 q/ha), biological yield (46.48), gross return (Rs. 69,230/ha), net return (Rs. 49,571/ha), production efficiency (20.56 kg/ha/day) and economic efficiency (450.64 Rs./ha/day) as compared to control. Whereas maximum B:C ratio (3.84) was recorded in 100% RDF followed by vermicompost @ 5 t/ha. Similarly, higher nutrient content (N, P and K) in seed as well as straw and their uptake were recorded under 50% RDF + 50% vermicompost. The highest protein content (41.99%) and protein yield (94,864 kg/ha) was also observed with the application of 50% RDF + 50% vermicompost. Hence, application of 50% RDF + 50% vermicompost better for obtain higher yields, economics and nutrient content and their uptake of soybean under rainfed condition of Jhabua hill of Madhya Pradesh
