Abstract:

The present research entitled, “Effect of tillage and nitrogen scheduling on yield, nutrients uptake and economics of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in central Punjab” was carried out at Experimental Research Farm of the Department of Agriculture, Mata Gujri College, Sri Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab during Rabi season of 2016-2017. The soil was alluvial having sandy loam texture with pH 7.3. The study was done in randomized block design with twelve treatments and three replications with HD 3086 wheat variety. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of two tillage systems used viz., zero tillage (ZT) and conventional tillage (CT) and three nitrogen application rated (100,125 and 150 kg/ha) on yield components, nutrients uptake by grain and straw and economics of individual plant parameters were recorded from randomly selected plants in each plot. On the basis of results summarized, the application of T11 - ZT + N5 i.e. N@125 kg (4 splits) applied at ¼, ¼, ¼ and ¼ at basal, 4, 6 and 8 WAS gave the best result in terms of crop yield, nutrients uptake by grain and straw and economics which is statistically at par to the application of T5 - CT + N5 i.e. N@125 kg (4 splits) applied at ¼, ¼, ¼ and ¼ at basal, 4, 6 and 8 WAS and T12 - ZT + N6 i.e. N@150 kg (4 splits) applied at ¼, ¼, ¼ and ¼ at basal, 4, 6 and 8 WAS.
