Effects of different levels of NPK on soil properties by wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

Author(s): Ahmad Shahab Samimi, Dr. Tarence Thomas
Abstract: A field experiment was carried out at the Sam Higginbottom Institute of agriculture, Technology and Science, Allahabad, within an individual agricultural holding, on lessive soil with medium and high richness in nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium respectively. During winter season in 27/11/2015 up to 26/03/2016 to investigate the effects of different levels Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium on soil properties by wheat (Triticum eastivum L). The treatments such as: (T0: 0 -0 -0 NPK, T1: 30- 0-20 NPK, T2: 60 -0 -0 NPK, T3: 120 -0 -0 NPK, T4: 0 -15 -50 NPK, T5: 0 -30 -0 NPK, T6: 0 -60 -10 NPK, T7: 120 -60 -50 NPK, T8: 60 -30 -25 NPK) kg ha-1 were tested in randomized block design (RBD). Fertilizer application significantly changed soil properties. Application of 120- 60- 50 NPK kg ha-1 to T7 has showed the maximum results on soil properties ( physical and chemical), like: moisture content, bulk density, particle density, pore space, water retaining capacity, pH, EC, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The lowest values obtained from treatment T0: 0-0-0- NPK kg ha-1 in during of research
