A field experiment was conducted at the Agricultural College Farm, Bapatla, during kharif 2017 to study the effect of five phosphorus levels to sunhemp as preceding green manure which was incorporated at 50% flowering stage with four replications was analysed in RBD design and four nitrogen levels to succeeding sweet corn crop was analysed in split plot design with four replications. The effect of phosphorus levels to preceding sunhemp green manure crop to succeeding sweet corn with different levels of nitrogen was analysed. The results revealed that application of 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 to preceding sunhemp green manure crop significantly recorded highest yield and quality parameters viz., green cob yield with husk, green cob yield without husk, green fodder yield at harvest, crude protein, crude fibre and total ash content at harvest in both straw and grain. Among the nitrogen levels to sweet corn recorded highest yield attributes and quality parameters were recorded at 120 kg N ha-1.

Keywords: Green manure, Sweet corn, Fertility levels
