Abstract:

The present study entitled, “Compensating nitrogen fertilizer requirement of desi wheat through Azotobacter and vermicompost” was conducted during the rabi season of 2017-2018 at the Agronomy Research Farm of Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar to study the effect of Azotobacter and vermicompost on quality parameters of desi wheat. The soil of the experimental field is sandy loam in texture, slightly alkaline in reaction, low in organic carbon and nitrogen, medium in available phosphorus and potassium. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design replicated thrice with ten treatments viz. T1 (Control), T2 (Vermicompost @ 6 t ha-1), T3 (Azotobacter + Vermicompost @ 6 t ha-1), T4 (30 kg N ha-1 + Vermicompost @ 3 t ha-1), T5 (40 kg N ha-1 + Vermicompost @ 2 t ha-1), T6 (50 kg N ha-1 + Vermicompost @ 1 t ha-1), T7 (30 kg N ha-1 + Azotobacter + Vermicompost @ 3 t ha-1), T8 (40 kg N ha-1 + Azotobacter + Vermicompost @ 2 t ha-1), T9 (50 kg N ha-1 + Azotobacter + Vermicompost @ 1 t ha-1) and T10 (60 kg N ha-1). Among various combinations of nitrogen fertilizer, vermicompost and Azotobacter treatments, highest LAI, protein content and protein yield of desi wheat was recorded in treatment receiving 100 % RDN (60 kg N ha-1). However, in terms of quality treatment T9 and T8 were at par with treatment T10. But various treatments failed to produce any significant variation in harvest index of desi wheat.
