Abstract:

Micronutrients are essential for the plant system, animals and humans growth, are receiving increased attention as their deficiency in soil is threatening the agricultural sustainability, nutritional quality as well as animal and human health. In order to assess the effect of Fe application in Grain Amaranthus (Amaranthus hypochondriacus L.) crop under middle Gujarat condition, a field experiment was conducted during Rabi season, 2019-2020 at College Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand (Gujarat). The experiment consists of twelve treatments laid out in randomized block design replicated four times. The results revealed that the application of recommended dose of fertilizer (30-15-00 NPK kg ha-1) coupled with enriched 200 kg FYM ha-1 with 15 kg FeSO4 recorded significantly highest plant growth and yield attributes viz., plant height, panicle length, grain (15%) and stover yield (20%)over recommended dose of fertilizer (control).While, significantly highest content of nitrogen (2.43%) and iron (102.3 mg kg-1) content in amaranthus grain was observed under the application of recommended dose of fertilizer along with FeSO4application at 11.25 kg ha-1  through enriched 200 kg FYM.
