Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at College Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat, India during rabi-summer seasons of the years 2019-20 and 2020-21 to study the influence of potash management on yield and economics of rabi maize (Zea mays L.) with different potash management practices viz; Control (Without potash fertilizers), 30 kg K2O /ha through MOP or SOP or Schoenite with and without KMB @ 1 lit/ha, 45 kg K2O /ha through MOP or SOP or Schoenite with and without KMB @ 1 lit/ha and Foliar spray of Schoenite @ 1.5 % at 30 and 60 DAS . The soil of the experimental plot was loamy sand in texture, marginal in organic carbon, and medium in available phosphorus and potash. Results revealed that 45 kg K2O /ha through MOP or SOP or Schoenite along with KMB @ 1 lit/ha recorded significantly higher growth and yield attributes viz; plant height at 60 DAS and at harvest, cob length and cob girth. They also produced significantly higher grain and stover yield over rest of the treatments. However, higher net monetary returns of ₹ 101643/ha and BCR of 4.39 was fetched under 45 kg K2O/ha through MOP + KMB @ 1 lit/ha.
