Abstract:

In recent time, sweet corn (Zea mays L.) is gaining popularity as a healthy snack item, both in urban & rural areas due to its high sugar and low starch content. There are diversified reports regarding effect of plant nutrients on growth and yield of sweet corn. Application of fertilizer considerably improves various yield attributes such as number of ears per plant, number of kernel per cob and kernel weight due to promotion of physiological activities in the plant. Sweet corn production is more influenced by nitrogen as compared with other nutrients. Depending upon location, cultivar and season of cultivation; sweet corn responds up to 150:75:50 kg N:P2O5:K2O/ha to obtain more yield of green cob and green fodder. Fertilizer management affects the quality of sweet corn through variation in content of protein, sugar and starch in the grain. The maximum net profit was recorded up to a fertility level of 150:50:60 kg N:P2O5:K2O/ha.
