Abstract:

Traditional agricultural practices have resulted in decreased soil fertility, shortage of water resources and deterioration of agricultural ecological environment, which are seriously affecting production of maize. A field experiment was conducted in medium black soil during kharif and rabi season of 2016-17 and 2017-18 at farmer field near Agricultural Research Station, Sirguppa. The results revealed that, among improved production technologies of maize, higher grain yield were noticed with improved method-4 (T5: 7681 kg ha-1) over farmer method of cultivation (T1:5840 kg ha-1). The magnitude of improvement in grain yield of maize by improved method-4 (Minimum tillage, herbicide and 100% fertilizers application) was to the tune of 31.52 per cent over farmer method of cultivation. Improved production technology showed lower penetration resistance and higher soil moisture content as compared to existing rice-maize cropping system.
