RESPONSE OF WHEAT (TRITICUM AESTIVUM L.) TO INM ON GROWTH, YIELD, CONTENT AND SOIL FERTILITY STATUS AFTER HARVEST THE CROPRamawatar Meena, P.P. Singh, R.K. Dadhich, A.K. Verma and D.K. Tiwari
A pot culture study was conducted to study the response of wheat to poultry manure and nitrogen levels at Department of Agricultural Chemistry and Soil Science, R.B.S. College, Bichpuri, Agra. Nitrogen-poultry manure interaction has been studied in pot experiments on soil low in fertility with wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The treatments were taken in factorial combination of four levels of N (0, 40, 80 and 120 kg ha-1) and three levels of poultry manures (0, 10 and 20 tones ha-1) applied through urea (NH2-CO-NH2) and poultry manure, respectively. The grain and straw yield increased with the application of N and Poultry manure individually, yield increased when N and Poultry manure were applied in different combinations. The contents of N, P and K were also improved by the crop. Available N, P & K status in soil after harvest of the crop increased with nitrogen and poultry manure application.
