Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of brewery waste water on growth and yield of maize at United Breweries Ltd., Nelamangala, during rabi 2008, kharif 2009 and kharif 2010 on a sandy loam soil. Treatments consisted of three levels of nitrogen through brewery waste water (1, 1 ½ and 2). Application of 1 ½ times the recommended level of N through treated brewery waste water recorded maximum plant height (188.7 cm), number of leaves (15.2), cob length (22.7 cm), cob circumference (15.1 cm), test weight (24.7 g), grain yield (6.36 t/ha) and stover yield (11.34 t/ha) followed by 2 times the recommended level of N through treated brewery waste water plant height (185.1 cm), number of leaves (13.9), cob length (16.8 cm), cob circumference (14.5cm), test weight (24.1 g), grain yield (5.83 t/ha) and stover yield (10.26 t/ha) were recorded during 2008, 2009 and 2010, respectively. Lowest plant height (136.7 cm), number of leaves (8.5), cob length (16.2 cm), cob circumference (12.3cm), test weight (19.9 g), grain yield (3.68 t/ha) and stover yield (6.36 t/ha) were recorded with farmers practice. The maximum available nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium were recorded with farmers practice and lowest were observed in the treatment which receiving 1 ½ times the recommended level of N through treated brewery waste water during all the years.
