Abstract:

Balanced fertilizer application is important for sustaining the productivity of ramie since the nutrient requirement of the crop is quite high due to its high biomass production. The present experiment was conducted at Nagaon, Assam, India from 2007 to 2009 to study the effect of varying levels of inorganic fertilizer nitrogen alone or in combination with crop residue, i.e., ramie waste on fibre yield and nutrient uptake by ramie, soil fertility and SOC concentration. The experimental data revealed that increasing the recommended dose of nitrogen in ramie from 100 to 150%, i.e., from 30 to 45 kg/ha/cutting increased the growth, fibre yield and nutrient uptake by the crop. Moreover at higher N dose (45 kg ha/cutting), 50% substitution of inorganic nitrogen through ramie waste further increased the growth, fibre productivity and nutrient uptake by the crop over inorganic nitrogen addition and also improved the fertility status of the soil and it also reduced application of fertilizer by 67-90 kg N/ha/year.
