Abstract:

Maize crop was raised in split plot design with different nutrient management practices as main and different levels of gypsum and borax as sub treatment. Main treatments included package of practices, UAS, Bengaluru (M1), STCR dose for targeted yield of 90 q ha-1 (M2) and STCR dose for targeted yield of 110 q ha-1 (M3) and sub treatments viz. control (S1), 200 kg gypsum ha-1 (S2), 2.5 kg borax ha-1 (S3), 5 kg borax ha-1 (S4), 200 kg gypsum + 2.5 kg borax ha-1 (S5) and 200 kg gypsum + 5 kg borax ha-1(S6). Among different nutrient management practices, M3 recorded significantly higher grain yield (93.0 q ha-1) with 15 % deviation from targeted yield, stover yield (184.25 q ha-1) and higher grass net returns 134758.0 and 90589.0 Rs. ha-1 respectively was recorded in M3. However higher B: C ratio (3.21) was recorded in M2 over M1. Among gypsum and borax treatments, S4 recorded significantly higher grain yield (89.86 q ha-1), stover yield (160.78 q ha-1) and higher grass and net returns 129356.0 and 97999.0 Rs. ha-1 respectively and B: C ratio (3.41) compared to S1 and S2 and was on par with S3, S5 and S6


Keywords: Boron, Gypsum, Maize, STCR, Economics and B: C ratio.
