Rice is major cereal crop of India which occupies 11 % of Worlds crop area. Presently it is third important legume after chickpea and pigeon pea, predominantly grown in India. Lathyrus is rich in protein (28%) and minerals especially calcium, phosphorus and iron. Rice – lathyrus sequential cropping plays a significant role in total productivity of crops in Vidarbha. The experiment was conducted at College of Agriculture, Gadchiroli in split plot design with 4 main plot treatment to Paddy (N1- 100 % RDN, N2 - 75% RDN through fertilizer + 25% N through Vermicompost, N3 - 75% RDN through fertilizer +25% N through Paddy straw compost, N4 - 50% RDN through fertilizer + 50 % RDN (Vermicompost + Paddy straw compost ), 3 subplot treatments to Lathyrus (F1 - 0 % RDN, F2 - 50 % RDN and F3 - 100 % RDN) with 3 replications during 2011-12. Application of 75 % RDN through fertilizer+ 25% RDN through vermicompost to paddy recorded highest grain (4287 kg ha-1) and straw yield (6011 kg ha-1) of paddy. Application of 75 % RDN through fertilizer+ 25% RDN through vermicompost to paddy and 100 % RDN to lathyrus recorded highest GMR (Rs. 68958 ha-1and Rs. 67143 ha-). However, highest NMR Rs. 41142 ha-1and Rs. 29834 ha-1) and B:C ratio (2.48 and 1.92) recorded with application of 100 % RDN to paddy and lathyrus respectively.
