Abstract:

Two consecutive field experiments after rice crop were conducted during 2011-12 and 2012-13 in the Crop Research Centre, of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology, Uttar Pradesh. Ten different treatments were implied to evaluate the residual effect of vermicompost and applied inorganic fertilizers on wheat crop. Significantly taller plants than T2 during both the years were measured in those treatments where 4 ton vermicompost was applied in rice. Spike length and test weight of wheat remained unaffected due to residual effect while the number of grains per spike was significantly affected. Grain yield varied from 20.00 to 48.70 and 21.30 to 49.50 q ha-1 during 2011-12 and 2012-13, respectively while straw yield 36.35 to 71.24 and 39.53 to 73.04 q ha-1 during 2011-12 and 2012-13, The maximum grain yield 48.70 and 49.50 q ha-1 during 2011-12 and 2012-13, respectively and straw yield 71.24 and 73.04 q ha-1 was recorded in T10 where along with 50% N, 100% P and K 4 ton vermicompost was applied in rice at flowering and 100% NPK to wheat. Residual effect of 4 ton vermicompost application on available soil K was significant. Organic carbon (%), pH and electrical conductivity (dSm-1) were not significant.
