Abstract:

A two years research experiment was conducted during 2014-15 and 2015-16 at upland farm of the ICAR research complex for NEH region, Barapani, Meghalaya. The experiment was undertaken to evaluate the effects of urine application as the alternative source of fertilizers in maize and toria cropping system. Among the treatments, application of human urine in combination with urea (T8) produced the highest maize equivalent yield (98.80 q ha-1), system productivity (27.07 kg ha-1 day-1), economic efficiency (135.21 ₹ day-1), return day (211.81 ₹ day-1) and production efficiency (42.40 kg ha-1 day-1) of maize-toria cropping system. The highest monetary return was recorded from human urine in combination with urea for maize but it was found under FYM (T5) in case of toria. However, the system gross return and B: C were observed under human urine in combination with urea.
