Abstract:
The present experiment work aims to determine the effect of tillage and land surface modification of physiological growth of kharif maize under dry land condition of eastern Uttar Pradesh. The experiment was carried out at the Institute of agricultural sciences, agricultural research farm Banaras Hindu University. The treatment included tillage practices (Conventional tillage – 2 disking + 1 criss cross cultivation, Summer Ploughing + Conventional tillage) and land surface modification (Line sowing, Ridge Furrow Planting, Raised Bed planting (2 row), Ridge furrow planting + Straw mulch, Raised bed planting (2 row) + Straw mulch). Mulch used in this investigation was rice straw mulch applied @ 6t ha-1 uniformly at 20 DAS. Soil moisture content in soil is very important for increased physiological crop growth in the dry land region. During most physiological crop growth stages, the availability of soil moisture was increased by Summer ploughing over conventional tillage and Raised bed planting (2 row + straw mulch) as compare to ridge furrow planting + straw mulch, raised bed planting (2 row), ridge furrow planting, line sowing respectively. Present study will help to recognizing higher physiological growth stages under different tillage and land surface modification practices.
