In a field experiment in 1992-94 at Junagadh, Gujarat, with wheat (Triticum aestivum) cv. GW 496, examined the effect of applying farmyard manure (FYM), castor cake or chemical fertilizers, alone or in combination with each other. The highest grain yielding treatments were 5 t castor cake + 120 kg N + 60 kg P2O5/ha (5.17 t/ha), 5 t castor cake + 60 kg N + 30 Kg P2O5 (4.94 t) and 15 t FYM + 120 kg N + 60 kg P2O5 (4.72 t). Application of FYM alone or in combination with chemical fertilizers significantly increased the residual status of available N and P in soil.
