Effects of different levels of NPK on yield 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, during winter season in 27/11/2015 up to 26/03/2016 to investigate the effects of different levels of NPK on yield by wheat (Triticum aestivum L.).The treatments concluded: (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) with three replications using a net plot size 2m× 2m. Fertilizer application significantly enhanced yield and other traits of wheat. Application of 120- 60- 50 NPK kg ha-1 to T7 recorded the maximum number of tillers /m2, grain/ spike, grain yield, test weight and straw yield. The lowest values obtained from treatment T0: 0-0-0- NPK in during of research. It is concluded that highest grain yield of 6394.68 Kg ha-1 was recorded with the application of 175-150-125 NPK Kg ha-1. The increase in yield was 60.5 % higher as compared to control (2539.03 Kg ha-1), where no fertilizer was used
