Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out at Agronomy Research Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumarganj), Faizabad (U.P.) during Rabi season of 2016-17 to study the response of Organic farming packages on growth, yield and quality of wheat. The experiment consisting of 9 treatments viz, T1 (0% Control), T2 (50% RDF), T3 (100% RDF), T4 (50% RDF + 50% Vermicompost), T5 (50% RDF + 50% FYM), T6 (50% RDF+25% poultry manure) T7 (75% RDF+ 25% Vermicompost), T8 (75% RDF+ 25% FYM), T9 (75% RDF + 25% poultry manure). The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design (R.B.D.) with three replications on silt loam soil with low in organic carbon (0.34%), nitrogen (161.43kg ha-1) and medium in phosphorus (14.71kg ha-1) and potassium (240.33kg ha-1). The growth characters like plant height, number of tillers, dry matter accumulation, leaf area index were significantly higher with the application of 75% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) through inorganic sources + 25% N through poultry manure (T9) being at par with T8, T7, T6, T4, and T3.The yield components like number of effective tillers, length of spike, number of grains spike-1 were maximum with the application of 75% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) through inorganic sources + 25% N through poultry manure (T9) being at par with T8, T7, T6, T4, and T3. Grain yield (kg ha-1) and straw yield (kg ha-1) were maximum with the application of 75% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) through inorganic sources + 25% N through poultry manure (T9) being at par with T8, T7, T6, T4 and T3. Harvest index and 1000 grain weight (g) were not influenced significantly due to nutrient management practices. Thus, it may be concluded that Organic farming practice of 75% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) clubbed with 25% poultry manure proved as the most suitable practice to get more yield and benefit.
