Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Farming System Research Centre, AICRP-IFS, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh, Gujarat on medium black soil to study the effect of wheat residue management and fertilizer levels on yield, quality, NPK uptake and monitory returns of fodder maize (Zea mays L.). Among different residue management treatments, harvesting through combine harvester and straw incorporation in soil + 5 kg madhyam + 25 kg N ha-1 recorded higher fodder yield, protein content, NPK uptake, net returns and BCR followed by harvesting through combine harvester and straw incorporation in soil + 5 kg Trichoderma + 25 kg N ha-1. Among different fertilizer levels application of 100% RDF recorded significantly highest fodder yield, protein content, NPK uptake, net returns and BCR over rest of the treatments.
