    ABSTRACT: A field experiment was conducted at Varanasi during the two consecutive pre-kharif season of 2012 and 2013 to work out the optimum levels of NPKS and Zn application for maximizing the yield, monetary return and nutrient use efficiency of baby corn. Results revealed that baby cob, baby corn and green fodder yield, economics and nutrient uptake (N, P, K, S and Zn) were recorded significantly higher with application of 125% RDF. Further, application of 50 kg S/ha resulted in significant increase of baby cob, baby corn, green fodder yield, net profit and nutrient uptake (N, P, K, S and Zn) over control but it remained at par with 25 kg S/ha. Similar trend were observed with application of zinc levels also. Increasing levels of sulphur and zinc application progressively reduced agronomic and physiological efficiency and apparent recovery of baby corn. In general, these indices were noted markedly higher with application of 25 kg S/ha and 5 kg Zn/ha over 50 kg S/ha and 10 kg Zn/ha, respectively. However, nutrient harvest index of N, P, K, S, Zn were increased gradually with application of increasing levels of NPKS and Zn. Hence, application of 125% RDF along with 50 kg S/ha and 10 kg Zn/ha was found optimum to obtain the maximum baby corn yield, net profit and nutrient use efficiency under irrigated condition of Varanasi.

    ABSTRACT: In order to evaluate the best management practices i.e. mulching, liming and farm yard manures for maximizing the productivity, profitability, nutrient uptake and quality on winter maize, a field experiment was conducted during the two consecutive rabi season of 2010-11 and 2011-12 at Agricultural Research farm of ICAR, RC for NEH Region, Nagaland Centre Jharnapani, Medziphema.Experiment was laid out in a split-split plot design having 24 treatment combinations of mulching and lime along with farm yard manures and replicated thrice. Results revealed that application of straw mulches significantly increased all the growth and yield attributes, grain yield, protein content and nutrient uptake by maize. Among the levels of lime, higher grain yield (3.91 t/ha) and stover yield (4.24 t/ha) were noted with application of lime @ 0.6 t/ha. Similarly, significantly higher grain (3.79 t/ha) and stover yield (4.17 t/ha), nutrient uptake, protein yield were recorded with application of farm yard manures @ 12 t/ha. Application of straw mulch along with 0.6 t/ha lime and FYM @ 12 t/ha was recorded markedly higher total rainfall and effective rainfall use efficiency. Hence, straw mulching applied with 0.6 t/ha furrows lime and 12 t FYM/ha should be adopted to obtain the maximum grain yield, net profit and nutrient uptake by winter maize.

    ABSTRACT: A field experiment was conducted in randomized block design during the rainy (kharif) season of 2012 at Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh to study the effect of organic and inorganic sources of nutrients on soil quality and productivityof rice (Oryza sativa L.). The highest grain and straw yields (5.03 and 7.18 t/ha) were recorded under the treatments 100% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) + S-Zn-B and 75% RDF + 25% N through sewage sludge, respectively. Application of S (40 kg/ha), Zn (5 kg/ha) and B (1.5 kg/ha) along with NPK (120:60:60) in rice increased plant height, tiller number, grain yield and 1,000-grian weight 22, 99, 62 and 22%, respectively, over the control, but did not show any significant increase in these parameters over 100% RDF. Initial trends indicated that application of Sesbania perhaps increased N, P, B and Zn in soil while inorganic S, B and Zn fertilizers had residual effect in post-harvest soil.

    ABSTRACT: A field experiment was conducted during the 2 winter (rabi) seasons of 2010–11 and 2011–12 at Jharnapani, Medziphema, Nagaland, to evaluate the best management practices, i.e. mulching, liming and farmyard manures for maximizing the productivity, profitability, nutrient uptake and quality of winter maize (Zea mays L.). The experiment was laid out in a split-split plot design, having 24 treatment combinations of mulching and lime along with farmyard manures and replicated thrice. Application of straw mulches significantly increased all the growth and yield attributes, grain yield, protein content and nutrient uptake by maize. Among the levels of lime, higher grain yield (3.91 t/ha) and stover yield (4.24 t/ha) were noted with application of lime @ 0.6 t/ha. Similarly, significantly higher grain (3.79 t/ha) and stover yields (4.17 t/ha), nutrient uptake, protein yield of maize were recorded with application of farmyard manures @ 12 t/ha. Application of straw mulch along with 0.6 t/ha lime and FYM @ 12 t/ha recorded markedly higher total rainfall and effective rainfall use efficiency. Hence, straw mulching with 0.6 t/ha furrows lime and 12 t FYM/ha should be adopted to obtain the maximum grain yield, net profit and nutrient uptake by winter maize.
