Nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), sulphur (S), zinc (Zn) and boron (B) nutrition of the Lentil-Mungbean-T. Aman rice sequences (L-M-R) are important for increasing crop productivity and improving soil fertility. Field experiments on Lentil-Mungbean-T. Aman rice cropping sequence was conducted in calcareous soils of Madaripur, Bangladesh tomeasure the crop yields, nutrient uptake and apparent balances. Four fertilizer treatments were considered viz. absolute nutrient control (T1); farmer’s practice (T2); AEZ basis fertilizer application (T3) and soil test basis fertilizer application (T4). The treatments were compared in a randomized completely block design with three replications over two consecutive years. The average yields of lentil, mungbean and T. aman rice ranged from 675 to 1067 kg ha-1, 1075 to 1801 kg ha-1 and 3049 to 4843 kg ha-1, respectively showing T4 as the best treatment. Soil test basis fertilizer application (T4) exhibited the highest nutrients uptake by all tested crops. The apparent balance of N and K was negative; however it was less negative for T2 and T4 treatment. The apparent P balance was positive in T2, T3 and T4 but negative in T1. Positive S balance observed in T3 and T4 but negative in T1 and T2. Zinc and B balance in the sequence was positive in case of T3 and T4. Considering highest yield, gross margin and soil fertility have been recommended that the soil test basis fertilizer application is profitable for Lentil-Mungbean-T. Aman rice cropping sequence in calcareous soils of Bangladesh. The study clearly indicate a possibility for the re-adjustment of the N, P, K, S and micronutrients (Zn & B) fertilizer doses for the different rice-based cropping sequence in different agro-ecological zone of Bangladesh.
