Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur during rabi 2016-17 to study the effect of FYM, mulching and agro-chemicals on yield, nutrient content and their uptake by wheat under different sowing dates. The experiment consisted of 12 treatment combinations comprising of two sowing dates (Timely, Late) and six management practices, viz., control, FYM, Mulching, FYM + Mulching, FYM + Mulching + ZnSO4 and FYM + Mulching + KCl (P0, P1, P2, P3, P4, P5). The experiment was conducted in factorial randomized block design and replicated thrice. Results showed that timely sowing of crop had significant effect on yield attributes (effective tillers, grains ear-1, ear length, grain weight ear-1), yield (grain, straw and biological) and nutrient uptake (N, P and K) over control. Maximum grain yield (5461 kg ha-1), straw yield (6124 kg ha-1) and biological yield (11585 kg ha-1) were recorded with timely sown crop, which was significantly higher over late sown crop. Result further showed that application of 10 t ha-1 FYM + 4.0 t ha-1 Mulch + 0.2% KCl (P5) recorded highest grain yield (5400 kg ha-1), straw yield (6633 kg ha-1) and biological yield (12033 kg ha-1) followed by 10 t ha-1 FYM + 4.0 t ha-1 Mulch + 0.5 % ZnSO4 (P4) and 10 t ha-1 FYM + 4.0 t ha-1 Mulch (P3). Also, same treatment resulted in higher nutrient content in grain and straw and their uptake.
