Abstract:

Nutrient management is one of the most crucial factors in scientific crop productions. The knowledge regarding use of optimum dose of crop nutrition is of prime concern in modern agriculture. The findings of this paper will be helpful in views of active investigators, theoreticians and practitioners on growth, yield, quality, nutrient uptake, soil health and economics of baby corn. Maize is an exhaustive crop and for gaining higher productivity of plant height, dry matter per plant, it requires high quantities of nitrogen during the period of efficient utilization. Application of 120 kg N ha-1 reduced days to corn initiation but prolonged the harvesting period over 80 kg N ha-1. Application of 30 kg P ha-1 is reported to be beneficial and economical for baby corn production under normal management. Potassium regulates the osmotic potential of cells and imparts resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses. Application of S and Zn has resulted in significant improvement for crude protein, Ca, ash in baby corn. Application of 125% RDF (187.5-93.7-75 kg ha-1) and 50 kg S ha-1 along with 10 kg Zn ha-1 has great impact on corn production in maximizing corn yield, fodder yield, nutrient content and monetary returns to the growers.
