Abstract:
A Field experiment was conducted during rabi 2020-21 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P). The soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.3), low in organic carbon (0.57%), available N (230 kg/ha), available P (32.10 kg/ha) and available K (235 kg/ha). The treatments consist of four levels of Nitrogen soil application and three levels of Iron foliar spray. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with nine treatments each replicated thrice. It is concluded that application of 50 kg/ha N + 0.6% iron foliar spray recorded significantly higher grain yield (1427.7 kg/ha), gross return (74,745 ₹/ha), net return (50,184 ₹/ha) and benefit cost ratio (2.04). These findings are based on one season; therefore, further trail may be required for further confirmation.
