Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur during Kharif 2013 to study the effect of phosphorus rich compost on yield, nutrient uptake and nutrient status in soil after harvest of maize. Results revealed that application of various sources and levels of phosphorus (DAP, SSP and PRC incubate with and without PSB and vermiculture) significantly increase grain, stover and biological yield of maize was recorded under treatment 25% RDP through PRC + Vermiculture + PSB + 75% RDP through DAP by 107.55, 82.56 and 91.96 per cent, respectively over control. Similarly, uptake of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium by crop was significantly higher with the application of 25% RDP through PRC + Vermiculture + PSB + 75% RDP through DAP by 159.56, 177.58 and 141.51 per cent, respectively over control. However, maximum available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in soil were recorded under treatment 100% RDP through PRC + Vermiculture + PSB after harvest of maize crop as compared to all other treatments.


Keywords: Phosphorus rich compost, DAP, SSP, PSB, Vermiculture and Maize.
