Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Crop Research Farm (CRF), SHUATS, Allahabad, during the Rabi season of 2017 with 12 treatments replicated thrice in randomized block design, to study the productivity and quality of wheat (Triticum aestivumL.) as influenced by different levels of potassium and nitrogen fertilization. Yield attributes and yield exerted significant variation due to application of different levels of potassium and nitrogen. The result revealed that treatment T8 (60 kg K2O + 120 kg N ha-1) was found to be maximum for no. of grains spike-1 (52.13) and test weight (49.87 g). Grain and Straw yield (6.30 t ha-1 and 8.94 t ha-1 respectively) were found to be highest in treatment T11 (90 kg K2O ha-1+ 120 kg N ha-1). Regarding the grain quality of wheat, the highest protein content (11.81 %) was recorded from treatment T8 (60 kg K2O + 120 kg N ha-1).
