Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season 2016-17 to study the “Effect of organic, inorganic, bio-fertilizer and seed inoculation on soil properties, growth and yield of maize (Zea may L.) Var. hybrid MM-2255” on Crop Research Farm Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Naini Agricultural Institute, Allahabad. The design applied for statistical analysis was carried out with 3x2x2 factorial randomized block design having three factors with three levels of nitrogen 50, 75, and 100 % ha-1, two level of FYM and Azotobacter 0, 100% respectively. The best treatment was T11 –N2F1 A1 (@ 100% nitrogen ha-1+100% FYM and Azotobacter) that showed the significant increase on enrichment of soil fertility status. Nitrogen, FYM and Azotobacter in combination resulted in a slight Increase in pH 7.50, EC 0.36 dSm-1. In post soil combination of nitrogen, FYM and Azotobacter fertilizers observations were resulted in significant increase in organic carbon 0.73%, particle density 2.85g/cc, bulk density 1.30g/cc, porespace55.91%, water holding capacity 51.32% and available N 330.5 kg ha-1, available P 32.76 kg ha-1, available K 212.88 kg ha-1. Significant increase in case of nitrogen (kg ha-1), FYM (kg ha-1) Azotobacter (kg ha-1) in treatment combination T11 –N2 F1 A1 (@ 100% nitrogen ha-1+ 100% FYM ha-1 and 100% Azotobacter). The maximum cost benefit ratio was recorded 1:2.73 and maximum net return (Rs. 63689.3) ha-1 and maximum yield (45.58 q ha-1) in treatment combination T11 –N2 F1 A1 (@ 100% nitrogen ha-1+ 100% FYM ha-1 and 100 % Azotobacter).
