Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2018 at Agricultural College Farm, Mahanandi to assess “Effect of plant density and nitrogen management on yield and quality of sweet corn (Zea mays var Saccharata)”. Among the plant densities tried, plant density at (D1) 60 cm X 15 cm recorded that highest uptake of N, P2O5 and K2O by the crop at all the growth stages. Among the nitrogen levels tried, application of (T5) 125 % RDN + FYM @ 10 t ha-1 at 25, 50 DAS and at harvest recorded the highest uptake of N, P2O5 and K2O which was however, found parity with (T4) 100% RDN + FYM @ 10 t ha-1. Plant density and nitrogen management treatments exhibited their superiority at the highest levels of plant density and nitrogen management over the other levels under chemical sources in enhancing green cob yield. The lowest cob yield was associated with non-supply of fertilizers.
