Effect of Organic and Inorganic Fertilizer Application on Maize Fodder Production

F.C. Oad, U.A. Buriro and S.K. Agha

The field experiment was conducted at Students’ Experimental Farm, Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam, Pakistan to assess the maize growth and fodder yield under varying combinations of organic manure (Farm Yard Manure (FYM) at the rate of 1500, 3000 and 4500 kg ha-1) and inorganic fertilizers (0, 60, 90, 120 and 150 kg N ha-1). The results revealed that all the maize plant parameters were significantly affected with the incorporation of FYM and nitrogen levels. Among the plant characters, tall plants, maximum stem girth, more green leaves and highest maize fodder yield were observed with the application of 120 kg N ha-1 with combination of 3000 FYM. It was concluded that the inorganic nitrogen application is the common practice of the farmers, but if, farmyard manure will be supplemented there may be significant increase in maize fodder yield.
