Abstract:

A present investigation was conducted at Research Farm, ICAR-Indian Institute of Soil Science, Bhopal during 2017-18 and 2018-19 to study the performance of maize crop under various nutrient management modules in a Vertisol. The field experiment was laid out in RBD consisting of 12 different integrated nutrient management (INM) modules in three replications. The maize (cv. Pro Agro - 4212) and chickpea (cv. JG-315) was grown in kharif and rabi seasons during 2017 and 2018 with an identified set of treatments. The performance of crops under these treatments was assessed in terms of plant height and seed index. Similarly, the soil physico-chemical properties were also assessed at crop harvest. Finally, the correlation among various studied parameters was worked out. The results revealed that the INM modules positively influenced the performance and productivity of maize crop as compared to the sole inorganic fertilizer application. Besides the superior crop performance, the integrated nutrient management modules significantly (p=0.05) enhanced and improved soil health in terms of soil physico-chemical properties. Among the various modules, (1) application of 75% STCR dose + FYM @ 5t ha-1 to maize, (2) application of FYM @ 20t ha-1 to maize increased the crop growth and seed index in maize, improved soil health and reflected as a viable technique in improving soil nutrient availability on a sustainable basis.
