Abstract

Kharif sweet corn (Cv. F1 Golden honeydew) grown in clay soil, the treatment of cutting with control-no cutting (C4) produced significantly higher values of yield and quality characters resulting in significant increase in cobs yield and green fodder yields and also enhanced the nutrient content in plant and uptake by plant over other cutting management practices under study. The method of soil application of Gluconacetobacter @ 6.5 kg in 250 kg FYM/ha + RDF (G2) produced maximum and significantly higher yield over other treatments of method of application of Gluconacetobacter. It also favourably influenced yield and quality character as well as nutrient content and nutrient uptake than other treatments of method of application of Gluconacetobacter. The cutting plant with control-no cutting (C4) along with soil application of Gluconacetobacter @ 6.5 kg in 250 kg FYM ha-1 + RDF (G2) would be the best proposition for higher productivity and quality of sweet corn.
