Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2018-19 to study the effect of foliar nutrition on growth and yield of sweet corn on sandy loam soils of Agricultural College Farm, Naira with a pH of 7.3 and EC of 0.072 dSm-1, low in organic carbon (0.42%) and available nitrogen (263.2 kg ha-1), medium in available phosphorus (22.9 kg ha-1) and potassium. The experiment comprised of nine foliar nutrition treatments and laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. The results revealed that foliar application of 19:19: 19 @ 1 % one week before tasseling fb1.0 % KNO3 one week after silking recorded higher cob weight, cob yield without husk, harvest index, gross returns, net returns and B: C ratio in sweet corn.
