Abstract
A field experiment conducted in rabi 2002-03 in Rajasthan, India to evaluate nutrient management for maximizing crop yield of wheat. Twelve treatment combinations of N, P, K, Zn, B and S (kg/ha) were made, with a common control of state recommended dose of fertilizer for wheat in a randomized block design, and with three replication of each treatment. The results of the experiment revealed that application of all nutrients, viz., N, P, K, Zn, B and S increased the grain and straw yield of wheat. Application of treatment T5 (N150P80K40Zn20B5S40) significantly increased parameters such as number of tillers plant-1, plant height at harvest, grain yield, straw yield, harvest index. Results of the present investigation reveal significance of site-specific nutrient management in wheat crop for maximizing of yield.
