Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Influence of Integrated Nitrogen Management Practices on yield attributes and yield of Hybrid Maize (Zea mays L.)” was conducted during the pre kharif season of 2015 at experimental field of College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, Manipur. The experiment was laid-out in Randomized Block Design with 3 replications and consisted 11 treatments. Results indicated that application of 100% RDN + vermicompost 5 t/ha recorded highest number of cobs per plant (2.0), cob length (19.98 cm), cob girth (16. 93 cm), number of grains per cob (510.70) and test weight (277.67 g). Similar trends were observed in case of grain yield (70 q/ha) and stover yield (91.20 q/ha). Significantly higher uptake of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium were recorded with the application of 100% RDN + vermicompost 5 t/ha (T7). With regards to economics indices the highest monetary return was associated with the application of 100% RDN + FYM 5 t/ha (T4).
