Abstract:

Today the application of imbalance fertilizers is an important issue for both crop productivity and soil health. The use of macro nutrients fertilizers increasing in both amount and numbers of application but in respect of it use of micro nutrients fertilizers decreasing. A reason behind this is to apply different type of fertilizers for different macro and micro nutrients. Therefore, the research work was proposed to study the scope of customized fertilizer (a combination of macro and micro nutrients) for increasing the productivity of wheat. Field experiment was carried out in randomized block design with four replications and the treatment consisted of T1 (control), T2 (RDF), T3 (Soil test-based recommendation), T4 (Indo-Gulf Customized Fertilizer), T5 (TCL Customized Fertilizer) and T6 (Farmer’s Practice). The treatment effect was compared based on yield, soil nutrients status, uptake and economics of crop. The grain and straw yield (q ha-1), uptake of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, zinc and boron were maximum under T3, which was at par with T4 and T5 and significantly superior over T1, T2 and T6. The maximum grain yield of wheat (46.64 q ha-1) was recorded with T3 which was significantly higher over than T1 (20.08 q ha-1), T6 (30.78 q ha-1) and T2 (38.10 q ha-1) while at par with T5(43.92 q ha-1) and T4(44.97 q ha-1). Maximum net return (Rs. 43828 ha-1) and B:C (0.95) were calculated in T3 followed by T4 (net return Rs. 39078 ha-1 and B:C 0.82) and T5 (net return Rs. 36925 ha-1 and B:C 0.78). Thus, from the finding we can say that the customized fertilizers will increase the yield, uptake of nutrients and also sustained the soil health by supplying the micro nutrient along with the macronutrients.
