Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season 2014-15 at Agricultural College Farm, Bapatla to study the “Growth and yield of rabi maize at different planting densities and nitrogen levels”. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design and replicated thrice. The results revealed that planting density of M1 (1,00,000 plants ha-1) and foliar application of ZnSO4 with nitrogen at tasseling i.e., S8 (300 kg N ha-1+ 0.5% ZnSO4 as foliar spray at tasseling) recorded highest growth, yield attributes and yield which was on par with M1 (1,00,000 plants ha-1) and S4 (300 kg N ha-1). The interaction between planting densities and nitrogen levels was found to be non-significant.


Keywords: Maize, Planting densities, Nitrogen levels, Zinc foliar spray.
