Abstract:

The experiment was carried out at experimental farm of Department of Silviculture and Agroforestry, Dr Y S Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan (HP) in the year 2016. Experiment was laid out in RBD factorial design in poplar based agroforestry system with three spacing viz., S1 (6m x 4m), S2(4m x 4m) and S3(open control without poplar trees) under which maize crop was grown and six fertilizer treatments viz., T1 (RDF), T2 (FYM on N equivalent ratio), T3 (VC on N equivalent ratio), T4 (75% FYM and 25% Vermicompost (on N equivalent ratio), T5 (50%FYM and 50% Vermicompost (on N equivalent ratio) and T6 (50% (25%FYM + 25% Vermicompost) + 50% chemical fertilizer). Results showed that treatment T6 reported maximum plant height, cob length, 1000 grain weight, grain yield and straw yield and showed its superiority over other treatments. However, among tree spacing levels, S3 (without trees) recorded maximum growth as compared to others.
