Abstract:

To study the response of Boron, Copper, Zinc, and NPK to the quality parameters of maize plant a field experiment was set up at Samhiggin Bottom University of Agriculture Science and Technology Prayagraj for two consecutive periods (2017 to 2018). The treatments consisted of 0, 3, 6, 9kg of Boron, zinc, copper /ha, and 0, 50 and 100kgNPK/ha respectively, and were arranged in a completely randomized design and replicated three times. Soil samples were collected from the field for routine analysis before planting. Plant parameters that were investigated include number of leaves which was obtained by counting, nutrients concentration in stems and leaves which were analyzed after samples were collected oven-dried and ground into powdered form. Grain yield and stover were also determined during harvest. The outcome of the investigations yielded a significant impact of the fertilizers on plant height, the number of leaves, concentrations of nutrients in plant parts and Yields of maize crop. The application of 100kgNPK+9Kg B, Zn Cu ha-1 produces the best result. It is therefore advisable to incorporate micronutrients whenever major nutrients are added to crops to obtained maximum yield
