INFLUENCE OF ORGANIC FERTILIZERS ON TOTAL CHLOROPHYLL CONTENT AND YIEID OF WHEAT (TRITICUM AESTIVUM)

Reena Sharma and Abha Agarawai

Abstract

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of different organic fertilizers (Vermicompost, Farmyard manure and Nadep compost) on total chlorophyll content and yield of wheat (Triticum aestimm). A set of six treatments comprising vermicompost @ 4.5t/ha +urea (T1), Vermicompost @ 12.5 t/ha (T2), Farmyard manure @4.5 t/ ha+u rea (T), Farmyard manure @ 25t/ ha (T4), Nadep compost @4.5 t/ha+urea (T) and Nadep compost @ 25t/ha (T,) was evaluated. The results revealed that application of 4.5t/ha yermicom post + urea (T) gave maximum total chlorophyll content and yield. All the treatments of organic fertilizers provided showed significantly higher total chlorophyll content and yield in wheat crop than control.
