Abstract:

A Field experiments were carried out on sandy loam soil at Sabour during kharif season of 2018 to evaluate optimum plant geometry, fertility levels and zinc level for baby corn (Zea mays L.) productivity and quality. Experiment was laid out in split–plot design and replicated thrice with three plant geometry level viz. P1 (40X20 cm), P2 (50X15 cm) and P3 ( paired row at 50+30 x20 cm) in main plot , three graded levels of fertility (kg NPK/ha) viz. F1(120:60:60), F2 (150:75:75) and F3 (180:90:90) in sub plot whereas, two levels of zinc (kg/ha) viz, Z1 (2.5) and Z2 (5.0) in sub-sub plot. Significant increase in baby corn yield (14.34 q ha-1), green fodder yield (267.822 q ha-1), net return (Rs 225774 ha-1), B:C ratio (5.12) and quality of baby corn were recorded with paired row plant geometry. The baby corn yield (13.92 q ha-1), green fodder yield (278.91q ha-1), net return (Rs 219108 ha-1), B:C ratio (4.81) and quality was fetched with graded fertility level 180:90:90 kg N P2O5 K2O/ha which remained significantly superior over preceding level of fertility. Higher level of zinc had improved baby corn yield (13.38q ha-1), green fodder yield (277.7q ha-1), net return (Rs 211821 ha-1), B:C ratio (4.77) and quality upto Zn2 (5.0 kg ha-1) level of zinc.
