Enhancing soil physical properties and yield of basmati rice through chemical fertilization and crop residue incorporation
Author(s): CH Hemant Solanki and Arun A David
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during Kharif season of July 2013 and 2014 at crop research farm SHUATS Allahabad to study the response of chemical fertilizer and crop residue on soil properties, yield parameters and yield of rice. Twelve treatments were arranged using (4x3) factorial R.B.D with three replications. The result were showed that the grain yield and pore space increased steadily with the increase in inorganic fertilizer level up to the 100% NPK ha-1 and wheat residue up to 5 tonnes. Further, interaction effect of increasing level of chemical fertilizer & wheat residue on yield and pore space was found significant in both the year of experiment. The date further showed that the given data maximum grain yield and pore space was found with the application of 100 % NPK along with 5 tonnes wheat residue followed by 50% NPK along with 2.5 tonnes wheat residue. However, reverse trend was noted in bulk density. Though, minimum grain yield and pore space was found under the treatments where no fertilization and wheat residue incorporation in rice had taken place.
