Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology Kumarganj, Faizabad (U.P.) during kharif season of 2013 to find out the nutrient economy through foliar application of fertilizer and to assess the economic feasibility of various treatments. The experiment was conducted in RBD with 3 replications and 12 treatments of nutrient management modulesviz.,T1-100% RDF as basal,T2-100% RDF as basal + 3 water sprays,T3-75% RDF + 2.5 Tonnes FYM, T4-50% RDF + 5 Tonnes FYM, T5-50% RDF + 3 foliar sprays of 20 kg Urea ha-1,T6-50% RDF + 3 foliar sprays of 20 kg Urea ha-1+ 10 kg ZnSO4 ha-1,T7-100% RDF + 30 kg ZnSO4 ha-1 as soil application,T8-100% RDF + 2 foliar sprays of 5 kg FeSO4 ha-1, T9-100% RDF + 2 foliar sprays of 10 kg Borax ha-1,T10-100% RDF + 2 foliar sprays of 10 kg Sulphur ha-1, T11-100% RDF + 2 foliar sprays of 20 Urea ha-1+ 10 kg ZnSO4 ha-1 and T12-100% RDF + 2 foliar spray of 10 kg ZnSO4 ha-1+ 5 kg FeSO4 ha-1+ 10 kg Borax ha-1+10 kg Sulphur ha-1. Treatment T12 (100% RDF + 2foliar sprays of 10 kg ZnSO4 ha-1 + 5 kg FeSO4 ha-1 + 10 kg Borax ha-1 + 10 kg Sulphur ha-1) found significantly superior over rest of the treatments in all the aspects. Treatment T12 (100% RDF + 2foliar sprays of10 kg ZnSO4 ha-1 + 5 kg FeSO4 ha-1 + 10 kg Borax ha-1 + 10 kg Sulphur ha-1) increases all the yield attributing characters viz., number of panicles (378 m-2), length of panicle (21.60 cm), number of grains per panicle (79.20) and test weight (23.10 g) of rice which undoubtedly results in increase in yield of rice crop. Treatment T12 found significantly superior and produced higher grain and straw yields as compared to the other treatments. Treatment T12was found economically best in respect to gross return (Rs. 45170) and net return (Rs. 23521) while B:C found best with Treatment (T11) (2.23) which was found superior over rest of the treatments.
