Abstract

 

This study explores the variations of maize growth performance and yield under application doses of Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) fertilization and different doses of farm yard manure (FYM). The experiment was conducted in University College of Agriculture, University of Sargodha, Sargodha, during the maize growing season of 2013. A field trial was carried outto examine the comparative efficiency of organic and inorganic fertilizers on different yield related traits. Nine treatments with five replications were used according to Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) in contrast to organic manures and its combination with inorganic fertilizer. Data were recorded on germination percentage, plant height, leaf area, plant wet weight and plant dry weight. The highest value were recorded for seed emergence percentage, leaf area, fresh and dry weight in T1 (20% Organic matter) while lowest value were recorded for seed emergence percentage, leaf area and fresh weight in T9 (control).This study concluded that the proper use of inorganic and organic substance increase the crop yield and also maintain the soil fertility status. However, Organic matter with the recommended rates of inorganic fertilizers could be recommended to maize crop growing farmers.

Key words: organic matter, nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, maize.
