Direct and residual effect of liming on yield and nutrient uptake of maize zea mays l. in moderately acid soils in the savanna zone of nigeria



Direct and residual effect of liming on yield and nutrient uptake of maize zea mays l. in moderately acid soils in the savanna zone of nigeria



Fertilizer Research 12(1): 11-20



Field experiments were conducted during wet season of 1980, 1981 and 1982 to determine the direct and residual effect of liming on yield and nutrient uptake of maize in moderately acid soils (pH-H2O; 5.0-5.4) at three locations viz Kontagora, Tumu and Yandev in the savanna zone of Nigeria. Maize crop was grown at five lime rates 0, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 t ha-1 and two N sources (calcium ammonium nitrate and urea). Liming at a rate of 2 t ha-1 maintained high maize yield for three years after application at Kontagora and Yandev. At Tumu 1 t ha-1 was sufficient to get high yield of maize for three years. Higher rates of lime significantly depressed yield. Uptake of N, P and K was increased significantly with lime application upto 2 t ha-1 line at Kontagora and Yandev but at Tumu it increased only upto 1 t ha-1. The response of P uptake to liming was higher in comparison to N and K uptake. Calcium and magnesium uptake responded upto 4 t ha-1 lime at Kontagora and Yandev and upto 2 t ha-1 at Tumu. The residual effect of liming lasted longer than 2 years. High lime rates reduced maize yields and crop nutrient uptake.
