Abstract:

On farm experiment was conducted at Department of Agronomy, Forages and Grassland Management, COA, CSK Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya, Palampur from kharif, 2015 to rabi, 2016-17. Experiment laid out in randomized block design with three replications comprising seven treatments i.e. 50% nitrogen through FYM + 50% nitrogen through inorganic fertilizer; 50% nitrogen through fortified vermicompost + 50% nitrogen through inorganic fertilizer; 50% nitrogen through vermicompost + 50% nitrogen through inorganic fertilizer; 25% nitrogen through FYM + 75% nitrogen through inorganic fertilizer; 25% nitrogen through fortified vermicompost + 75% nitrogen through inorganic fertilizer; 25% nitrogen through vermicompost + 75% nitrogen through inorganic fertilizer and recommended dose of NPK through inorganic fertilizer and three treatments i.e. 50% (recommended dose of NPK through inorganic fertilizers; 75% RDF and 100% RDF. All the seven treatments given to maize crop will act as main plot treatments for wheat during rabi season. System’s total productivity, system’s total uptake and system’s total economics in maize-wheat cropping system was found statistically higher with the treatments 25% N through fortified vermicompost + 75% N through fertilizer (T5) however, this remained statistically at par with recommended dose of fertilizer (T7) in case of by product yield, total uptake and total economics during both the years. Application of 100% RDF (F3) gave significantly higher system’s total grain and stover/straw yield, total uptake and total economics followed by 75% RDF during both the seasons. The interaction effects between treatments in maize and wheat management did not significantly affect total systems grain and stover/straw yield, total uptake and total gross returns, net returns, benefit cost ratio during both the years.
