Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2019 at the Research farm, ITM University, Gwalior to study the “Agronomical performance of kharif maize (Zea mays L.) Under the effect of organic and inorganic fertilizers”. RDF(0, 50 and 100 kg ha-1) and VC(0, 5 and 10 kg ha-1 Vermicompost (VC) with nine treatment combinations tested in factorial randomized block design with three replications. Results indicated that application of 100 kg RDF ha-1 recorded the maximum germination percentage (87.84%) plant population (5.95), plant height (178.39cm), number of leaves (15.84),fresh weight (298.07gm), dry weight (48.19gm), number of cobs (1.53), cob length (12.63cm), cob girth(7.55cm), cob weight with kernels (116.24gm), cob weight without kernels (44.56gm), number of kernels per plant (342.62), weight of kernels (71.68gm), seed index (18.04gm), grain yield (46.95q/ha), stalk yield (57.52q/ha), biological yield (104.48q/ha), harvest index (44.91%), protein content (11.42%), cost of treatment (21300.00Rs/ha), gross monetary returns (77609.3Rs/ha), net monetary returns (56309.3Rs/ha), B:C (2.64).
