Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out at AICRP on Irrigation Water Management, V.N.M.K.V., Parbhani during kharif season of 2015-16 on clayey soil. The experiment was laid in split plot design with twelve treatments consisting of three combinations of irrigation as main plot and four combinations of fertigation as sub plot treatments replicated thrice. Treatments consist of Main plot treatments - Irrigation Levels viz., 0.6 x P.E through drip, 0.8 x P.E through drip, 1.0 x P.E through drip and Subplot treatments: - Fertigation Levels Viz., 100 % RDF through Fertigation, 75 % RDF through Fertigation, 50 % RDF through Fertigation, 100%RDF as soil application. Growth parameters like plant height (cm), dry matter production (g), number of grains per cob, cob weight per plant, grain weight per plant, and number of grain row per cob were significantly higher with irrigation at 1.0 PE (I1) over the 0.6 PE (I3) and comparable with 0.8 PE (I2) at all observations. Application of fertilizer @ 100% RDF through drip (F1) recorded significantly highest growth parameters like plant height (cm), and dry matter production (g), number of grains per cob, cob weight per plant, grain weight per plant, number of grain row per cob over the application of fertilizer with 100% RDF through soil (F4) and 50% RDF through drip (F3), respectively but it was on par with 75% RDF through drip (F2). Significantly lowest growth parameters were recorded at 50% RDF through drip (F3) and were at par with 100% RDF through drip (F4).
