Abstract

 

Field experiment was conducted to study the effect of waste water with basal dose of NPK on the morphological traits of maize during 2014. This research was carried out according to randomized complete block (RCB)design with five replications. The characters studied including germination percentage, plant height, leaf area, plant wet weight and plant dry weight were measured. The germination percentage and plant height decreased with reduction in the recommended doses of N, P and K with application of wastewater. The maximum value were recorded for seed emergence percentage, leaf area, fresh and dry weight in T1(Full N + Full P + K + waste water),while minimum value were recorded for seed emergence percentage, leaf area and fresh weight in T9 (Full N, Full P and full K).It was recommended that application of waste water with NPK could be favorable effects on the maize crop.

Key words:
NPK, waste water, morphological traits, maize.
