Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agriculture Farm of Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur to study the effect of Vermicompost, FYM, sulphur, zinc, Azotobacter and PSB on growth, yield and uptake of nutrients in maize and their residual effect on succeeding wheat during 2018-19 and 2019-20. The results of the experiment revealed that the growth and yield attributes of maize viz., plant population, plant height, length and diameter of cobs and 1000 grain weight were significantly increased with T14 (100% RDN+25% N-VC+S+Zn+Az+PSB) followed by T13 (100% RDN+25% N-FYM+S+Zn+Az+PSB), T10 (100% RDN+S+Zn+Az+PSB) during both the years and on pooled mean basis. It was further noticed that the application of T14 in maize significantly improved the growth and yield contributing parameters of wheat viz., plant height, spike length, 1000 grain weight except plant population during both the years of experimentation. The results revealed that the integrated use of either 75 or 100 % RDN with VC or FYM in maize significantly enhanced the growth and yield attributing parameters of maize as well as succeeding wheat. It was also noticed that the application of S and Zn further improved the growth and yield attributes of maize and wheat. It clearly indicated that the addition of FYM or VC with S, Zn and Az+PSB in maize significantly increased the growth and yield attributes of maize and wheat during both the years of experimentation.
