Abstract:

The field experiment on farm trial (OFT) was conducted on maize during two consecutive Kharif seasons of the year 2009-10 and 2010-11 in order to develop fertilizer prescriptions for the desired yield targets treatments viz., farmers practice, recommended practice and soil testing based fertilizers application. For taking higher production of crop a viable approach is needed to supply the crop with nutrients that limit its production. The present study deals with this issue. In this experiment application of chemical fertilizers along with biofertilizer based on soil testing increased 19.86 per cent in economic yield than the farmers practice during pooled of the two years. The net return also showed an increase of Rs. 5976/- ha-1 under soil testing based fertilizer application than farmer practices during the year.
