Abstract:
The investigation was carried out at the Crop Research Centre of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology, Meerut, (U.P) during Rabi seasons of 2017-18 with three replication. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with seven treatments viz. T1=Control, T2=10 t ha-1 Farmyard manure, T3=10 t ha-1 Farmyard manure + Cow urine +biofertilizer (Azotobacter), T4=10 t ha-1 Vermicompost, T5=10 t ha-1 Vermicompost+ Cow urine +biofertilizer (Azotobacter), T6=7.5 t ha-1 Farmyard manure + Cow urine +biofertilizer (Azotobacter), T7=80% of RDF of nitrogen through vermicompost + 10% through neem cake + biofertilizer (Azotobacter) was laid out in randomized block design with three replication. Result show that T7 (80% of RDF of nitrogen through vermicompost + 10% through neem cake + Azotobacter) significantly higher the growth and yield attributing character of wheat viz. plant height(cm), dry matter accumulation(q ha-1), number of tillers (m-1)row length, grainsspike-1, grain yield (q ha-1), straw yield (q ha-1)and test weight(g) over the control plot. It also recorded significantly higher spike length 67.69% grain yield 70.16%, test weight 52% and harvest index 5% of wheat over control plot. The present study thus indicates that a combination of 80% of RDF of nitrogen through vermicompost + 10% through neem cake + Azotobacter (T7) better use for the cultivation of wheat.
