Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad (U.P.) during Rabi season of 2014-15 and 2015-16. Sixteen treatments comprised of four levels of moisture regime (a) I1; 0.6 IW/CPE ratio (b) I2; 0.8 IW/CPE ratio (c) I3; 1.0 IW/CPE ratio and (c) I4; 1.2 IW/CPE ratio and four levels of fertilizers ((a) 100% RDF through inorganic fertilizers (120:60:40 kg NPK ha-1) (b) 75% NPK+ 25% N through FYM (90:45:30 kg NPK ha-1) (c) 50% NPK+ 50% N through FYM (60:30:20 kg NPK ha-1) (d) 25% NPK+75% N through FYM (30:15:10 kg NPK ha-1) were tested in a split plot design with three replications. The growth attributes viz., number of shoots, plant height, dry matter accumulation and yield attributing characters viz., number of grains spike-1, number of spike m2, length of spike, test weight, grain and straw yield, harvest index, nutrients uptake by crop was significantly increased 75% RDF (90:45:30 kg NPK/ha +25% N through FYM along with I4; 1.2 IW/CPE ratio moisture regime which was at par with 100% RDF(120:60:40 kg NPK/ha)along with I4; 1.2 IW/CPE ratio moisture regime and significantly higher over rest of the treatment as well as economics of various treatments were recorded. Moisture regime of 1.0 IW/CPE ratio (5-6irrigations) was found suitable for achieving higher yield of wheat with 75% RDF (90:45:30 kg NPK/ha +25% N through FYM followed by 100% RDF (120:60:40 kg NPK/ha) was found suitable higher growth and yield of wheat crop. On the basis of results obtained, application of 75% RDF (90:45:30 kg NPK/ha +25% N through FYM, nutrient supply system and I4; 1.2 IW/CPE ratio moisture regime found to be more suitable for higher yield of wheat variety Malviya 234.Wheat cultivar Malviya 234accrued the maximum net return with B:C ratio of 2.76 under 1.0 IW/CPE moisture regime (I3) with 100% RDF through inorganic fertilizers (120:60:40 kg NPK ha-1).
