Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted during Zaid, 2021 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 9 treatments, replicated thrice. Results that observed that significantly highest plant height (162.41cm), dry weight (111.57 g/plant), cobs (1.33/plant), cob length with husk (20.37 cm), cob length without husk (8.07 cm), cob weight with husk (65.75 g), cob weight without husk (23.53 g), green cob yield with husk (15.53 t/ha), green cob yield without husk (5.56 t/ha), green fodder yield (29.47 t/ha) and harvest index (35.53%) were recorded with 1% ZnSO4 (foliar spray at 20 and 40 DAS) + Azotobacter. Maximum gross returns (Rs. 2,37,266.70/ha), net returns (Rs. 1,80,596.70/ha) and benefit: cost ratio (3.19) were obtained highest in the treatment combination of 1% ZnSO4 (foliar spray at 20 and 40 DAS) + Azotobacter.
