Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2014 and 2015 at Zonal Research Station, Darisai (East Singhbhum) under Birsa Agricultural University, Ranchi, Jharkhand. The experiment was designed in Randomized Block Design having 8 treatments viz. T1-100% RDF, T2-125% RDF, T3-150% RDF, T4-75% RDF + Azotobacter + PSB, T5-RDF + 5 tons FYM/ha, T6- RDF + 2.5 tons FYM/ha, T7- Farmers practice and T8- control and each replicated thrice. The RDF used was 120:60:40 NPK/ha. The seed rate, spacing and variety taken in the experiment was 20 kg/ha, 60 cm x 25 cm and HQPM-1 respectively. The pooled results revealed that treatment T3 (150% RDF) recorded significantly higher growth parameters and yield attributes viz. plant height(201.90 cm), number of grains/cob (393.20), test weight (223.25 g) and grain yield (52.05 q ha-1) which was closely followed by treatment T5 (RDF +5 tons FYM/ha and recorded plant height (200.30 cm), number of grains/cob (391.95), test weight (223.15 g) and grain yield (51.70 q ha-1) and was found to be at par to treatment T3. The pooled table 2 shows that maximum net return and BC ratio was computed in treatment T3 having values as Rs.35914.00 and 1.41 respectively followed by treatment T5.
