Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted at Farming System Research Centre, AICRP-IFS, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh, Gujarat on medium black soil during summer season of 2015 and 2016 to study the effect of wheat residue management and fertilizer levels on growth and yield of fodder maize (Zea mays L.). Data revealed that among different residue management treatments, harvesting through combine harvester and straw incorporation in soil + 5 kg madhyam + 25 kg N ha-1 recorded higher plant height, no. of leaves plant-1, leaf area index, leaf chlorophyll content, stem diameter, no. of internodes plant-1, dry matter plant-1 and fodder yield followed by harvesting through combine harvester and straw incorporation in soil + 5 kg Trichoderma + 25 kg N ha-1. Among different fertilizer levels application of 100% RDF recorded significantly highest plant height, no. of leaves plant-1, leaf area index, leaf chlorophyll content, stem diameter, no. of internodes plant-1, dry matter plant-1 and fodder yield over rest of the levels.
