Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, MPUAT, Udaipur, Rajasthan during 2018 to Effect of vermicompost and zinc application on growth and yield attribute of maize crop. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design, comprising vermicompost and zinc and their combination, viz., T1 control, T2 vermicompost (1.5 t ha-1) + zinc (0 kg ha-1), T3 vermicompost (1.5 t ha-1) + zinc (2.5 kg ha-1), T4 vermicompost (1.5 t ha-1) + zinc (5.0 kg ha-1), T5 vermicompost (3.0 t ha-1) + zinc (0 kg ha-1), T6 vermicompost (3.0 t ha-1) + zinc (2.5 kg ha-1), T7 vermicompost (3.0 t ha-1) + zinc (5.0 kg ha-1), T8 vermicompost (4.5 t ha-1) + zinc (0 kg ha-1), T9 vermicompost (4.5 t ha-1) + zinc (2.5 kg ha-1), T10 vermicompost (4.5 t ha-1) + zinc (5.0 kg ha-1), treatments replicated three times. The increased growth parameter such as chlorophyll content, plant height (30, 60 and at harvest), Leaf area index (30, 45 and 60 DAS) with the application of vermicompost (4.5 t ha-1) + zinc (5.0 kg ha-1). The application of vermicompost (4.5 t ha-1) + zinc (5.0 kg ha-1) increased number of grain per cob (457.09), weight of grain per cob (95.04 g), seed index (33.65) seed yield (3896.33 kg ha-1), stover yield (5415.13 kg ha-1) and biological yield (9311.46 kg ha-1).
