Effect of N, P and K on productivity and soil fertility in pearlmillet Wheat cropping system



Effect of N, P and K on productivity and soil fertility in pearlmillet Wheat cropping system



Indian Journal of Agronomy 44(3): 483-487, September



A field experiment was conducted at Bichpuri, Agra, during 1990-93 on sandy loam soil low in available N, medium in available P and high in available K. The highest productivity and profitability of pearlmillet (Pennisetum glaucum L.)-wheat (Triticum aestivum L. emend. Fiori and Paol.) sequence could be sustained when both crops in sequence were fertilized separately with 120 kg N, 40 kg P2O5 and 40 kg K2O/ha, registering highest net return (Rs 10,364/ha) and B:C ratio (Rs 1.12). The fertilizer application at higher levels resulted in building up of the fertility of the soil.
