Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted on a clayey soil of North Eastern Dry Zone of Karnataka during kharif 2015 to study the effect of source of nitrogen on yield and economics of baby corn based intercropping systems. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with five main factors and three sub- factors, replicated thrice. Results showed that growth parameters like Plant height, Number of green leaves per plant, Leaf area, Leaf area index and Total dry matter production and among the yield attributes, Cobs plant-1, length of the dehusked cob, cob weight with husk and cob weight without husk was significantly higher with sole baby corn and among nitrogen practices with application of 100% RDN trough chemical fertilizer. Sole baby corn recorded significantly higher green cob yield and green stalk yield among nitrogen practices with application of 100% RDN trough chemical fertilizer.
