Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at the Coconut Research Station, Balaramapuram, Thiruvananthapuram, during the summer season to work out an economic nutrient management schedule for baby corn intercropped in coconut garden. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with 10 treatments replicated thrice, using the baby corn hybrid, G 5414 as a test variety. Plant height (125.16 cm) at 30 days after emergence (DAE), number of leaves per plant at 45 DAE (11.87), leaf area index at 15 DAE (0.365), 30 DAE (2.25) and 45 DAE (4.28) and dry matter production (24203.70 kg ha-1) were significantly superior at T7 The yield attributes viz., cob length (11.60 cm), cob girth (5.30 cm) and cob weight with husk (84.22 g plant-1) recorded significantly higher values at T7. Similar results were also recorded with respect to cob yield with husk (17162.66 kg ha-1), marketable cob yield (6720.67 kg ha-1) and green stover yield (26203.70 kg ha-1). All the above yield attributes (except cob weight with husk) were on a par with T4. The uptake of nitrogen (304.64 kg ha-1), phosphorus (59.65 kg ha-1) and potassium (277.01 kg ha-1) was significantly higher with the treatment T7. Gross income ( 2,68,827 ha-1), net income ( 1,90,367 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (3.43) were significantly higher in T7. Baby corn intercropped in coconut garden was observed to be superior with the application of FYM @ 12.5 t ha-1 + 135: 65: 45 kg NPK ha-1 (½ N + full P + K as basal; ½ N + ½ K @ 25 DAS).
