Abstract:

A pot experiment was conducted to assess ’’Influence of Integrated nutrient management practices on biomass yield and growth of maize crop in acid soil” in The Dept. of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, C.A. BBSR in Kharif. The pot experiment was conducted in an acid sandy loam soil with Maize as the test crop (Hybrid). In each pot filled with 5 kg of collected soil. Then 3 seeds were sown per pot. The experimental site experiences a warm and moist with hot and humid summer and mild winter. The mean minimum and maximum temperature were 22.10c and 31.90 c respectively. The treatments were given to Control (T1), Soil test based recommended dose (STD) (T2), Vermicompost (T3), Lime (T4), Lime + vermicompost (T5), STD + VC@ 2.5 t ha-1 (T6), STD + Lime (T7), STD + VC @ 2.5 t ha-1+ Lime (T8). The results of the present experiment indicated that combined aplication of STD + VC @ 2.5 t ha-1+ Lime was increase the biomass yield and growth of maize crop in acid soil as compared to other treatments.


Keywords: Pot culture, Lime, Acid soil, Vermicompost, Integrated nutrient management.
