Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif 2019 at Central Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj, (U.P.). The soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 6.7), low in organic carbon (0.35%), available N (230 kg/ha), available P (20 kg/ ha) and available K (189 kg /ha). The treatment consisted of 3 levels of Nitrogen viz.N1(90 Kg N/ha), N2(120 Kg N/ ha),N3(150 Kg N/ha) and 3 levels of Sulphur S1(15 Kg S/ha), S2(30 Kg N/ha),S3(45 Kg S/ha).There were 9 treatments each replicated thrice. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design. The result showed that growth parameters viz., plant height (129.6cm) at 80 DAS, leaf area index (4.98) at 80 DAS, Dry weight (169.03 g/plant) at 80 DAS and yield and yield attributes viz., No. of rows/cob (13.65), No. of seeds/row (30.65), 100-Grain Weight (20.90 g), Grain Yield (4.87 t/ha),Stover Yield (9 t/ha) and Harvest Index (35.11 %) were recorded maximum in treatment T9 (150 Kg N/ha+45 Kg/ha). Hence the application of 150 Kg N/ha along with 45 Kg S/ha gave the highest yield.
