Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted in the rabi season on Integrated Farming System at BHU, Varanasi to evaluate the effect of different level of fertility and cow urine foliar spray on growth, yield and yield attributes of wheat (Var-HUW 234). The grain yield and straw yield of wheat varied significantly under varying levels of fertility and cow urine foliar sprays. The experiment was conducted under the split plot design with three replications. However, the response of fertility levels (RDF = 120-60-60-25 kg ha-1 of NPKZn levels) to the improvement of grain and straw yield was positively correlated and the same was also true in case of grain and straw yield increment with the spray of cow urine. The Cow urine foliar sprays (four) were done at 20 days interval from 30 DAS to 90 DAS to study the effect on growth and yield of wheat. It was reported that application of 80% and 100% RDF, respectively recorded 10.37% and 20.46% higher grain yield over 60% RDF. Moreover, application of 50%, 75% and 100% cow urine spray recorded 2.69%, 18.01% and 27.21% higher grain yield, respectively over control.
