Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the response of conventional, non-conventional organic sources and industrial by-products in yield maximization of maize at the farmer’s field in Karapadi village, Sathyamangalam taluk, Erode district located in Western Zone of Tamil Nadu during April to June 2018. The present study was made to evaluate the extent of contribution RDF as control, 100 % RDF + Municipal solid waste compost @ 5 t ha-1 and 75 % RDF with Municipal solid waste compost @ 10 t ha-1, 100 % RDF with bio-compost @ 2.5 t ha-1 and 75 % RDF with bio-compost @ 5 t ha-1, 100 % RDF with Bagasse Ash @ 5 t ha-1 and 75% RDF with Bagasse Ash @ 10 t ha-1, 100 % RDF with Rice Husk Ash @ 5 t ha-1 and 75 % RDF with Rice Husk Ash @ 10 t ha-1 on growth, yield of maize. The experiment was conducted in a Randomized Block Design (RBD).75% RDF + MSWC @ 10 t ha-1 significantly produced taller plants, Leaf length, Leaf breadth, Leaf area per plant and higher LAI, while on contrary, the 75 % RDF + Bagasse Ash @ 10 t ha-1 did not favor the growth parameters conspicuously. 75% RDF + MSWC @ 10 t ha-1treatments significantly enhanced the Yield parameters like Cob length, Cob girth, Number of grains per cob, Grain weight per cob, 100 grain weight, Number of kernel rows per cob, Number of kernels per row when compared to the control. Among the treatment, The application of 75% RDF + MSWC @ 10 t ha-1edged over the other treatments and resulted highest grain yield (10.09 t ha-1) and Stover yield (11.55 t ha-1).
