Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at the Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand during two consecutive Kharif and rabi seasons of the year 2015-16 and 2016-17 with a view to study the “Direct and residual effect of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers on maize (Zea mays L.)– chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) cropping sequence”. The experiment comprised of four levels of organic manures viz., Control(M1), FYM(M2), castor cake(M3), vermicompost (M4); and two levels of Recommended dose of fertilizers (100% (F1) and 75% (F2) of RDF) and two levels of sulphur (0(S1) and 20(S2) kg S/ha). The experimental plots were laid out in Randomized Block design with four replications. The kharif maize was fertilized as per different treatment combinations and its residual effect was study on rabi chickpea. The results revealed that growth, yield attributes, seed and stover yields of chickpea and available N and P2O5 status were significantly increased due to different organic manurial treatments (M2, M3 and M4) over control (M1)and highest seed yield was recorded by residual effect of FYM @ 10 t/ha (M2) and being at par with vermicompost(M3), castor cake(M4). The residual effects of 100% RDF was significantly affected on seed & stover yields and available N over 75% RDF while in case of sulphur treatments, non-significant results were observed in all cases except weight of nodules/plant. Hence, in maize-chickpea cropping sequence, application of 100% RDF (120-60-0 kg NPK/ha) and FYM @ 10t/ha to maize crop gave better residual effect on crop yields of succeeding crop chickpea.
