Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur (Rajasthan) during kharif 2018 to study the effect of different fertility and zinc levels on growth, quality and productivity of maize in sub-humid zone of Rajasthan. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design comprising four fertility levels viz., control, 50%, 75%, 100% NPK ha-1 and four zinc levels viz., control, 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0 kg ha-1. Results revealed that application of 100% NPK ha-1 and 6.0 kg zinc ha-1 applied in maize to significantly improved growth parameter i.e. plant height at 30 and 60 DAS and at harvest, grain yield, stover yield and biological yield, yield attributes viz., grains cob¬-1, cob length, seed index and quality parameters viz., chlorophyll content and protein content net return and benefit cost ratio in sandy clay loam soil of agro-climatic zone lVa of Rajasthan.
