The field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2015, at the experimental farm of IFTM University, Lodhipur Rajput, Delhi Road NH-24, Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh. Thirteen treatment combinations viz., T1 (Control), T2 (120% RDF NPK), T3 (120% RDF NPK + B), T4 (120% RDF NPK + Zn), T5 (120% RDF NPK + B + Zn), T6 (100 % RDF NPK), T7 (100% RDF NPK + B), T8 (100% RDF NPK + Zn), T9 (100% RDF NPK + B+ Zn), T10 (75% RDF NPK + 10 t FYM ha-1), T11 (75% RDF NPK + B + 10 t FYM ha-1), T12 (75% NPK + Zn + 10 t FYM ha-1), and T13 (75% RDF NPK + Zn + B +10 t FYM ha-1) with different levels of NPK with and without FYM, Zn and Boron were taken for this investigation to find out the most economical amongst them. The results revealed that combined application of 75% NPK + Zn + B +10 t FYM ha-1 i.e., T13 recorded higher grain yield (26.42 q/ha), gross returns ( .49595.00), net return ( .30300.00) and B:C ratio (1.57) followed by T12 (75% RDF NPK + Zn + 10 t FYM ha-1.

Keywords: Maize, Economics, B: C ratio and grain yield.
