Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Effect of iron and zinc enriched FYM on growth, yield and quality of wheat in salt affected soils of Gujarat” was conducted during 2014-15 to 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Agricultural Research Station, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Adiya, Gujarat. The experiment encompassed eight treatments combinations viz., T1: RDF (Based on STV), T2: T1 +1.0 t FYM ha-1; T3: T1 + 1.5 kg Zn ha-1; T4: T1 + 3.0 kg Fe ha-1; T5: T1 +1.5 kg Zn ha-1 + 3.0 kg Fe ha-1; T6: T1 + 0.5 t FYM ha-1 enriched with 0.75 kg Zn; T7: T1 + 0.5 t FYM ha-1 enriched with 1.5 kg Fe; T8: T1 + 0.5 t FYM ha-1 enriched with 0.75 kg Zn and 1.5 kg Fe. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with four replications. The results reveal that application of recommended dose of fertilizer (120-60-00 NPK kg ha-1) on the basis of STV + 0.5 t FYM ha-1 enriched with 0.75 kg Zn and 1.5 kg Fe (T8) recorded significantly higher effective tillers per plant, length of spike, no. of spikes per plant, no. of seeds per spike, plant height, grain and straw yields of wheat over T1 (Recommended dose of fertilizer on the basis of STV only) during all the individual years as well as on pooled basis. The farmers of North Gujarat Agroclimatic zone having salt affected soil and interested to grow wheat are advised to apply recommended dose of fertilizer on the basis of STV + 0.5 t FYM ha-1 enriched with 0.75 kg Zn and 1.5 kg Fe for getting higher yield and net returns.
