Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out to study the comparative effectiveness of farm yard manure and vermicompost under prescription based fertilizer application in maize-wheat system in an acid Alfisol at experimental farm of Department of Soil Science, College of Agriculture, CSK HPKV, Palampur. There were nine treatments which were replicated thrice in a randomized block design. The treatments were control, soil test based, farmers’ practice, 100% NPK, target yield (non-IPNS), target yield with 2.5t and 5t FYM ha<sup>-1</sup> target yield with 2.5t and 5t vermicompost ha<sup>-1</sup>. The target yield for maize and wheat was 40 q and 35 q ha<sup>-1</sup>, respectively. The soil of experimental farm was silty clay loam in texture, acidic in reaction (pH 5.1), medium in organic carbon (7.8 g kg<sup>-1</sup>) with 208, 26.8 and 214 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> of available N, P and K, respectively. All the chemical properties were positively correlated with grain and straw yield of maize.
