Effect of Inorganic Fertilizer, Vermicompost and Bio-Fertilizer on Quality, Content and Uptake of Nutrients in Sweet Corn (Zea mays L. var. saccharata)

Nazir Khan Mohammadi | R. M. Pankhaniya | Maitrik.P Joshi


Abstract: The field experiment was carried out at college farm, Department of Agronomy, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, India during rabi season (November- February) of 2015- 2016. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three factors with two levels of inorganic fertilizer @ 75 % RDF, 100 % RDF, three levels of vermicompost @ 0 t/ha, 2.0 t/ha, 4.00 t/ha and two levels bio fertilizers control and Azospirillum + PSB respectively. The quality parameter viz. , protein content in grain and fodder as well as total sugar content were significantly affected due to various levels of inorganic fertilizers. The maximum protein content in grain and fodder as well as total sugar content were recorded with 100 % RDF (F2) which was found significantly differ from the 75 % RDF treatments. Nutrient content was significantly influenced due to various level of inorganic fertilizers. The maximum N, P and K content in grain and fodder were recorded in 100 % RDF (F2) which was found significantly differ from the 75 % RDF treatments. The quality parameter viz. , protein content in grain and fodder as well as total sugar content were significantly affected due to various levels of vermicompost. The maximum protein content in grain and fodder as well as total sugar content were recorded in vermicompost @ 4.0 t/ha (V2). Nutrient content was significantly influenced due to various level of vermicompost. The maximum N, P and K content in grain and fodder were recorded in vermicompost @ 4.0 t/ha (V2). Application of biofertilizer had non-significant effect on most of the crop growth parameter, yield attributes.
