Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during winter (rabi) season of 2015 at the certified organic experimental farm of the SHUATS Model Organic Farm (SMOF) in NAI, Allahabad. This experiment compared the performance of wheat variety “AAI W8” under effect of different planting system and organic manures on growth and yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Effect of four planting systems (S1: SWI, S2: Conventional, S3: Ridge and S4: FIRBS sowing) was studied on two organic manure (M1: FYM 16 t ha-1 and M2: Poultry manure 4 t ha-1) was laid out a randomized block design with three replication. The results revealed that there was significant and higher number of effective tillers hill-1 (29.00) observed in treatment T1 (SWI + FYM) and same treatment recorded significantly higher grain yield (5.6 t ha-1) which was 76.73% higher than the lowest grain yield (3.18 t ha-1), it also recorded straw yield (7.45 t ha-1) which was 84.86% higher than the lowest straw yield (4.03 t ha-1) observed in T4 (Traditional sowing + poultry manure). However, T2 (SWI + poultry manure) was statistically at par with T1 (SWI + FYM).The economic analysis clearly indicate that SWI + FYM had increased gross returns, net returns and Benefit: Cost ratio of wheat plants. This indicates that SWI planting system with combination of organic manures is important to get higher wheat yield from organic production system.
