The main objective of present investigation was to study the effect of quality compost prepared from paddy straw and distillery effluent on the growth of wheat crop. Three best composts 1, 2and 3weretaken for the growth of wheat crop and different treatments were made by amending soil with different concentrations of compost and recommended dose of fertilizers. Different parameters like root, shoot weight and length, N, P, K uptake by wheat at 90 days of sowing and total N, P, K of soil after harvesting were studied. The maximum root and shoot length were 15.92 and 36.20 cm respectively in T9. The same effect was seen with root and shoot weight, it was also maximum in T9 i.e. The dry matter yield and N (41.75), P (51.24), K (35.87) mg/plant uptake of wheat was maximum in T9 with the application of 100% RDF along with compost prepared with 30% distillery effluent and microbial consortia (compost 2). The total N (0.038%), P (532 mg/Kg) was maximum in T9 while K (0.344%) of soil after harvesting of crop was maximum in T13.
