Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2018-19 on sandy loam soils of Agricultural College Farm, Naira, to study the effect of foliar nutrition on growth and yield of sweet corn.

Foliar application 19:19: 19 @ 1% one week before tasseling fb1.0% KNO3 one week after silking (T6) recorded tallers plants, higher dry matter production, no. of cobs plant-1, cob girth, cob yield with husk and stover yield. The lowest values for growth parameters, yield attributes and yield were associated with non supply of foliar nutrients (T1). yield. The lowest values for growth parameters, yield attributes and yield were associated with non-supply of foliar nutrients (T1).
