Abstract: An investigate was carried out with different rate of rock phosphate enriched compost and single supper phosphate fertilizer alone or combined with vascular arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) applied to rabi maize in the year 2015-16 and 2016-17. Concentration of iron Fe (674.8 mg kg-1) significantly increased the in maize straw in pooled analysis. Manganese (Mn) and zinc (Zn) in maize cover, silk and Zinc content and maize cover and grain significantly higher in 75% P as RP+ AM (T8) treated plots and also Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu content in the different part of maize numerically increased over control plots which was statistically non-significant. Rock phosphate and SSP alone or combined with AM increased the micronutrients concentration, in the different part of maize.
