Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Enhancing the performance of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) through fly ash and nitrogen management” was conducted during the rabi season of 2018-19 at Research Farm of Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo, Bathinda (Punjab). The trail was laid out in split plot design with two fly ash levels viz., control (F0), 10 t ha-1 (F10) in main plot and five levels of nitrogen viz., control (N0), 90 kg N ha-1 (N90), 120 kg N ha-1(N120), 150 kg N ha-1 (N150) and 180 kg N ha-1 (N180) in sub plot. Use of fly ash and nitrogen showed the significant impact on growth and yield attributes of wheat. Fly ash application 10 t ha-1 with nitrogen 180 kg ha-1 proved to be significant over rest of the treatments as it registered maximum growth expect N 150 kg ha-1. Highest plant height, number of tillers, leaf area index, dry matter accumulation, straw yield and biological yield were found in fly ash @ 10 t ha-1 and 180 kg N ha-1. Number of effective tillers, ear length, number of grains ear-1 and grain yield was found highest in fly ash @ 10 t ha-1 and 180 kg N ha-1 which was at par with Fly ash application fly ash @ 10 t ha-1 and 150 kg N ha-1. Thus it can be concluded that fly ash application 10 t ha-1 and nitrogen 150 kg ha-1 more effective.
