PERFORMANCE OF LATE SOWN WHEAT (TRITICUM AESTIVUM) UNDER VARYING LEY& OF NUTRIENT APPLICATIONS.S. Kumar, S. Barla, A.C. Pandey and R. Kumar
The present experiment has been carried out at Zonal Research Station, (Birsa Agriculture University, Ranchi), Darisai, East Singhbhum, Jharkhand with the consideration of performance of different level of NPK application on late sown wheat during session 2004-05. The observations have been recorded on plant population, plant height, thousand grain weight, number of grain per spike, grain yield and straw yield. Economics of different fertilizer level has also been worked out. The treatments 80:75:40, 80:50:40, 100:50:40, 80:50:20 and 80:50:60 have quite similar results on yield attributes and obtained significantly better results as compared with other treatments.The treatment 80:75:40 produced maximum grain yield (31.40 q/ha) and straw yield (55.26 q/ha). The fertilizer level 80:50:40 established as the best treatment for maximizing net return (18617.60 Rs./ha) as well as B:C ratio (2.43), therefore, it is economical and profitable at the farmers level.
