Author(s): Tammi Fazily, CS Hunshal
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2010-11 on medium black soil of Main Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad to study the response of late sown wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) to organics under irrigation. Application of RPP (RDF+FYM @ 7.5 t ha-1) recorded significantly taller plants (68.11 cm), higher dry matter production (204.90 g/m row length) and number of effective tillers (137/ row length) at 90 DAS and greater ear length (9.01 cm), higher number of grains (41/ear), grain weight (1.39/ear) and (90.87 g/m row length), 1000 grain weight (34.37 g), grain yield (2724 kg/ha), straw yield (4690 kg/ha), protein content (13.27%), net returns (Rs 35104/ha) and B:C (2.62) compared to other treatments. Under organic treatments sheep manure (50%) basal +poultry manure (50%) as top dressing at 30 DAS clearly followed RPP.
