Abstract:

A field experiment which was carried out at the Soil Science Research Farm, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences-Deemed to be University, Allahabad during kharif season, 2015. The experiment was conducted in factorial randomized block design with three level of N:P:K [control (L0), N10P20K20 (L1) and N20P40K40 (L2)] and three levels of Neem cake [control (N0), @ 2.5 q ha-1 (N1) and @ 5.0 q ha-1 (N2)]. The present investigation revealed that among fertility levels application of N20P40K40 (L2) recorded the lowest pH (6.93) and bulk density (1.06 Mg m-3) and highest in pore space, organic carbon, available nitrogen, available phosphorus and available potassium (49.67%, 0.75%, 322.39 kg ha-1, 31.88 kg ha-1 and 201.64 kg ha-1, respectively). Among different levels of neem cake, application of 5.0 q ha-1 (N2) neem cake recorded the lowest pH (6.97) and bulk density (1.07 Mg m-3) and highest in pore space, organic carbon, available nitrogen, available phosphorus and available potassium (49.01%, 0.71%, 311.91 kg ha-1, 29.19 kg ha-1 and 183.37 kg ha-1, respectively).
