Author(s): PP Singh, NL Sharma and R Meena
Abstract: Maize is one of the most important cereal crops in India. A field experiment was conducted on Integrated Plant Nutrient Supply (IPNS) induced changes in Yield and Nutrient Content of maize (Zea mays) crop at Agricultural Research Farm of Amar Singh (P.G.) College, Lakhaoti, Bulandshahar. The grain yield (average of two year) ranged from 33.13 to 52.56 q ha-1, strover yield 40.32 to 60.76 q ha-1 and total biological yield 73.44 to 113.32 q ha-1 where maximum yield of maize was produced by application of nutrients through 10 tonnes ha-1 FYM + Rest through chemical fertilizers (T3). Nutrient contents under integrated plant nutrient supply (IPNS) of maize crop was observed maximum 1.51, 0.45 and 0.59 percent NPK respectively, in grain and 0.98, 0.705 and 1.80 percent NPK respectively, in stover through application of nutrients by 10 tonnes ha-1 FYM + Rest through chemical fertilizers (T3). In these parameters, significant increase was recorded in the treatments received organic, inorganic and bio-fertilizer sources of nutrients in combined form.
