A field experiment was conducted at the research farm of R. B. S. College Bichpuri, Agra during the Rabi season of 2012-13 to determine the effects of Farmyard Manure (FYM) and phosphorus application on wheat crop in alluvial soil. The experiment was laid out in the randomized block design (RBD) with four levels of FYM (control, 2.5, 5.0 and 10 t ha-1) and four levels of phosphorus (control, 40, 80 and 120 kg P2O5 ha-1) with three replications. Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potash (NPK) were applied in the form of urea, single super phosphate and muriate of potash respectively. Results revealed that the plant height, number of tillers (m-2), number of spikes (m-2), spike length (cm), number of grain spike-1, 1000- grain weight and grain and straw yield of wheat crop improved by FYM and phosphorus application. The nutrient contents as N, P, K and Zn in grain and straw of wheat enhanced significantly with the application of FYM @10t ha-1 and phosphorus @ 80 kg P2O5 ha-1.This treatment also recorded highest grain yield of 33.5 q ha-1 as compared to rest of other treatments. Hence the application of FYM @10 t ha-1 and phosphorus @ 80 Kg P2O5 ha-1 is recommended to the farmer for getting better production of the wheat crop.

Keywords: NPK Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potash (K), FYM Farmyard Manure, RBD Randomized Block Design
