Effect of recommended doses of fertilizer on growth and yield of wheat and mustard intercropping with citronella (Cymbopogon winterianus)

Author(s): Rahul Kumar Mishra, AK Srivastava, Niteesh Kumar Yadav, Deepchand Chaurasiya and Vinay Singh
Abstract: An experiment was conducted to study the effect of recommended doses of fertilizer on growth and yield of wheat and mustard intercropping with citronella (Cymbopogon winterianus) was conducted during rabi season, 2015-16 at Students Instructional Farm (SIF), C.S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur. The experiment was laid out in Randomized block design with 09 treatment of cropping systems with 03 fertility levels i.e. [Sole citronella, Sole Wheat, Sole Mustard, Citronella + Wheat (100%RDF), citronella + Wheat (75%RDF), citronella + Wheat (50%RDF), citronella + Mustard (100%RDF), citronella + Mustard (75%RDF), citronella + Mustard (50%RDF)], were replicated thrice. In case of citronella among the treatment maximum number of tiller per plant recorded in citronella + Mustard 100% RDF (40.33), whereas maximum herbage yield recorded in sole citronella (35.36 q/ha). In case of wheat maximum plant population (29.67 plant/m2), shoot length at harvest (107.67 cm), grain yield (34.63q/ha), straw yield (49.50q/ha), test weight (40.33g) was recorded in sole wheat, whereas fresh weight of shoot at 30 DAS (5.67g), shoot length at harvest (17.67cm), number of spikelet/spike (40) was recorded maximum in Citronella + Wheat (100%RDF). In case of mustard maximum initial plant population (7 plant/m2) was observed in Citronella + mustard (100%RDF), whereas plant height at 30 DAS (47.33 cm), plant height at 60 DAS (108.0 cm), number of branches per plant (8.0), number of silique per plant (186.0), biological yield (57.72q./ha) and harvest index (24.09) was recorded maximum in sole mustard.
