TAILIEUCHUNG - STCR- based manure and fertilizers application effect on performance of rice and chemical properties of Vertisol

An experiment was conducted at soil science research farm of Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur, to study the effect of STCR-based manure and fertilizers application on growth and yield of rice, and changes in chemical properties of soil. Experiment was carried out during kharif season of 2016. Experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design, consisting of four replications and six treatments viz., T1: Absolute control, T2: GRD, T3: Targeted yield 50 qha-1 , T4: Targeted yield 60 qha-1 , T5: Targeted yield 50 qha-1 with 5 t FYM ha-1 and T6: Targeted yield 60 qha-1 with 5 t FYM ha-1 . The result revealed that rice growth parameters and grain yield was significantly affected due to fertilizers and manure application and recorded highest yield in treatment T6 (5725 kg ha-1 ) which was significantly superior to control. The chemical properties viz available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium were found significantly higher as compared to control. Hence, it can be concluded that integrated use of NPK fertilizer with FYM based on STCR approach not only gave higher rice yield but also improve and sustain the soil fertility. | STCR- based manure and fertilizers application effect on performance of rice and chemical properties of Vertisol
