Abstract:

Soil phosphorous (P) limitation is one of the most important obstructions to food production in Pakistan. An experiment was carried out at Agronomy research farm of the University of Agriculture, Peshawar during winter 2015 with an objective to estimate the effect of poultry manure (PM) and P on wheat performance. Experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design having four replications. Three levels of PM (1, 1.5, 2 tons ha-1) and five levels of P (0, 50, 75, 100 and 125 kg ha-1) were taken as treatments. Poultry manure and P significantly affected phenology, yield and yield components of wheat. More tillers m-2 with maximum days to anthesis, maturity and maximum spike length, grains spike-1, thousand grains weight, biological yield and grain yield were recorded in plots treated with PM @ of 2 tons ha-1. With increase in P levels days to anthesis and maturity decreased. Maximum tillers m-2, spike length, grains spike-1, thousand grain weight and grain yield was recorded for P applied @ of 125 kg ha-1 which was statistically similar to P applied @ of 100 kg ha-1. Maximum biological yield was recorded with the application of 125 kg P ha-1. Based on the experimental results it can be concluded that application of PM @ of2 tons ha-1 in combination with P @ of 100 kg ha-1 resulted in higher productivity of wheat.
