Abstract:

To study the effect of dates of sowing and fertility levels on yield attributes and yield of baby corn (Zea mays L.) under temperate conditions, an experiment was conducted at Crop Research Farm of Division of Agronomy, Faculty of Agriculture, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir, Wadura during Kharif 2018. The experiment comprised of two factors with four sowing dates viz., 18th SMW (30th April - 6th May), 21st SMW (21st May – 27th May), 24th SMW (11th June – 17th June) and 27th SMW (2nd July – 8th July) as main plot treatments and four fertility levels viz., unfertilized control (F0), 100:50:25 N: P2O5: K2O kg ha-1 (F1), 120: 60: 30 N: P2O5: K2O kg ha-1 (F2) and 140: 70: 35 N: P2O5: K2O kg ha-1 (F3) as sub-plot treatments laid out in split plot design with three replications. The results indicated that baby corn sown in 18th SMW (30th April - 6th May) recorded significantly higher yield attributes viz., Number of baby corn per plant, baby corn girth with and without husk, weight of single baby corn with and without husk and baby corn yield and green fodder yield compared to other sowing dates and 27th SMW sowing date (2nd July – 8th July) recorded significantly lower yield attributes and yield of baby corn, however baby corn length with and without husk was not influenced by different sowing dates. Among different fertility levels, 140:70:35 N: P2O5: K2O kg ha-1 (F3) fertility level recorded significantly higher yield attributes viz., Number of baby corn per plant, baby corn girth with and without husk, weight of single baby corn with and without husk and baby corn length with and without husk and baby corn yield and green fodder yield compared to other fertility levels whereas unfertilized control (F0) recorded significantly lower yield attributes and yield.
