Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Zaid season of 2020 at experimental field of the Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Prayagraj, and Uttar Pradesh, India to determine the soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 6.7), medium in organic carbon (0.72%), available nitrogen (114.8kg/ha), available phosphorus (17.14 kg/ha), available potassium (156.2 kg/ha), The effect of nitrogen and sulphur levels growth and yield of maize (Zea mays L.). ten treatments consisted of three levels of nitrogen (100, 120 and 140 kg/ha) and three levels of sulphur (30, 45, 60 kg/ha) replicated thrice in along with control. The experiment was carried out through a statistical design of Randomized Block Design (RBD). The result showed that growth parameters viz. plant height (234.46 cm), at 80 DAS number of leaves/plant (13.40), Dry weight (100.82 g/plant), and Crop growth Rate (2.97 g m-2/day), at 60-80 DAS Relative Crop Growth Rate (0.043 g/g/day) at 60-80- DAS and yield parameters viz., test weight (281.4 g), cob/plant (1.50 plant-1), No. of grains/cob (425.93), Grain’s yield (8.33 t/ha) and stover yield (16.28 t/ha) were observed 140 kg/ha nitrogen and 60 Kg/ha sulphur.
