Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the pre-kharif season of 2018 at experimental field of College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, Manipur to study the influence of sowing time and integrated nitrogen management on growth and yield of local glutinous maize (Zea mays L.). The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design (FRBD) with 12 treatments and 3 replications. The treatment consisted of four different integrated nitrogen management practices and three sowing dates. The result revealed that maximum plant height, plant fresh weight, number of leaves and LAI were recorded with the application of RDN- 75% through urea + 25% through FYM (N3) for the crop sown on 9th April (S3). Similarly maximum number of cobs per plant, number of grain rows per cob, cob length, number of grains per cob and test weight of maize was observed in the treatment N3S3. The maximum grain and stover yield were obtained with the application of RDN- 75% through urea + 25% through FYM and the crop sown on 9th April. It can be concluded that the local glutinous maize (Zea mays L.) responded well to the integrated nitrogen management for the crop sown on 9th April (N3S3) as expressed in growth and yield.
