A field experiment was carried out at the College Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand during two consecutive Kharif and rabi seasons of the year 2015-16 and 2016-17 with a view to study the Yield and yield attributes of maize as influenced by organic manures and inorganic fertilizers on maize (Zea mays L.)-chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) cropping sequence. The experiment comprised of four levels of organic manures viz., Control(M1), FYM(M2), castor cake(M3), vermicompost (M4); and two levels of Recommended dose of fertilizers (100% (F1) and 75% (F2) of RDF) and two levels of sulphur (0(S1) and 20(S2) kg S/ha). The experimental plots were laid out in Randomized Block design (factorial) with four replications. The kharif maize was fertilized as per different treatment combinations and its residual effect was study on rabi chickpea. Results revealed that application organic manure (M2: 10 t FYM/ha) recorded non-significant response on plant population at 20 DAS and at harvest and number of cobs/plant. Application of 10 t FYM/ha (M2) and 100 % RDF (F2) was recorded significantly highest plant height, number of leaves, dry matter accumulation/plant, AGR, CGR, length of cobs, girth of cob, seed index, seed and straw yield. The sulphur @ 20 kg S/ha recorded significant response on plant height at 60 DAS, average weight of cob and seed yield of maize.

Keywords: Maize, FYM, castor cake, vermicompost, AGR, CGR, seed and straw yield
