Abstract:
Wheat crop is the most important food crop in northern India which faces several constraints such as nutrient use efficiency, food demand and production costs. During this era, reduction in cost of production is major issue for doubling farmer income and food production. So, concerning these issues, a research was conducted with objective of assessing wheat economics with fertilizer placement and nutrient management. The experiment conducted with six nutrient management (100 percent RDF (150:60:40 NPK kg/ha), 75 percent RDF, 75 percent RDF + Vermicompost, 75 percent RDF + Vermicompost + PSB, 75 percent RDF + Poultry manure, and 75 percent RDF + Poultry manure + PSB) and three fertilizer placement options (Deep placement, Band placement and Broadcasting) with addition control in factorial randomized block design, and replicated thrice. The research findings reveals that combining approach of deep placement and 75 percent RDF + Vermicompost/poultry manure + PSB found suitable for reduction of cost of production and enhancing crop production. It may be attributed due to reduction of fertilizer doses and addition of organic manure with PSB.
