Abstract:

A field experiment is conducted to study the effect of integrated use of organic and inorganic sources of nutrients and biofertilizers on growth and nutrient content of maize in Alfisols of Hyderabad. The results revealed that among the inorganic nutrient treatments 100% RDF treated plots recoded significantly higher yield and nutrient content and uptake of grain and stover. The reduction in levels of fertilizers reduced the growth of the maize. Among the Integrated nutrient treatments 75% RDF along with 25% N or P Substituted through vermicompost or poultry manure with addition of azotobacter or phosphorus solubilising bacteria recorded the highest drymatter, N, P, K, S and micronutrients content of grain and stover of maize both at flowering and harvesting stages.
