Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to study the “Effect of organic and inorganic source of nutrients on growth and yield of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)” at the Research Farm of Department of Soil Science, SHUATS, Allahabad. The experimental field was applied with different levels of NPK (NPK-0%, NPK-50% and NPK-100%) and FYM (FYM 0 tha-1, FYM 5 tha-1 and FYM 10 tha-1). The experimental results revealed that both NPK and FYM nutrients alone or in combination had significant effect on growth parameters (plant height, number of tillers, number of spikes, spikes length) and yield parameters (grain yield and biological yield) of barley. The best treatment for maximum growth parameters (plant height, number of tillers, number of spikes, spikes length) and yield parameters (grain yield and biological yield) was noted in treatments applied with combination of both high concentration of NPK and FYM. From the results it was indicated that NPK should be used with FYM in order to have good biomass and maximum yield of barley.
