Abstract:

Total twelve treatments were tested to study “Effect of cow urine enriched agricultural waste on growth, yield and uptake by wheat” during rabi 2017-18 in randomized block design with three replications with wheat variety GW 451. The growth and yield parameters of wheat viz., plant height at harvest (84.3 cm), number of tillers per meter row length (102), number of ear head per meter row length (94), grain per ear head (41.2), 1000 grain weight (48.2 g), grain yield (4813 kg ha-1) and straw yield (6498 kg ha-1) were recorded significantly higher with application of 100%  RDN through chemical fertilizes (T5). The highest gross and realization of 121288.5 ₹ ha-1 and 93196.5 ₹ ha-1 was accrued under the treatment T5 (100% RDN by chemical fertilizers) with the Benefit : Cost Ratio of  4.3. The maximum NUE (22.5 kg ha-1) was noted under treatment T5 and the minimum NUE (16.4 kg ha-1) was noted under treatment T3. The maximum bacterial population was noted under T12 whereas; fungal population was higher in T5. Significantly the higher values of available N (141.7 kg ha-1), P2O5 (32.7 kg ha-1) and K2O (203.1 kg ha-1) content in soil after harvest of crop were recorded with the treatment T12. In case of organic carbon, treatment T3 recorded the highest value of organic carbon (0.27 %). Uptake of N, P and K was found maximum in treatment T5 (100% RDN by chemical fertilizers) compare to rest of treatments.
