Abstract:

An experiment entitled, “Effect of integrated use of nano and non-nano fertilizers on yield and yield attributes of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)” was conducted at the research farm of Farming System Research Centre of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu, Chatha during the rabi season of 2015-2016. The experimental results revealed that among the treatments, treatment T7 (100 % NPK + Nano NPK (L) sprays at 20, 30 & 45 DAS @ 3 ml/litre of water + 2 Nano-K (L) sprays at grain development stage at 110 and 125 DAS @ 4 ml/litre of water) though statistically at par with the treatment T3 (100 % N + 100 % P2O5 + 50 % K + 50 % Nano-K (G) @ 31.25 kg/ha + 2 Nano-K (L) sprays at grain development stage at 110 and 125 DAS @ 4 ml/litre of water) and T2 (100 % N + 100 % P2O5 + 100 % Nano-K (G) @ 62.5 kg/ha) recorded significantly higher grain yield (44.45 q/ha), straw yield (55.99 q/ha) and harvest index(44.25 %). However, the yield attributes viz. effective tillers per metre row length, length of ear (cm), number of grains per ear and 1000-grain weight (g) were also recorded significantly higher in T7 which was statistically at par with the treatment T3 and T2. Henceforth, based on one year study, it is concluded that treatment T7 (100 % NPK + Nano NPK (L) sprays at 20, 30 and 45 DAS @ 3 ml/litre of water + 2 Nano-K (L) sprays at grain development stage @ 4 ml/litre of water 115 and 125 DAS) was the best treatment in increasing the grain yield of wheat crop.
