Effect of Higher Doses of Fertilizers and Spray of Urea, Zn and Kinetin on Damage Potential of Heterodera avenae in Wheat
Saroj Yadav and R.S. Kanwar

Abstract:
Background and Objective: Purpose of experiment was to manage cereal cyst nematode (H. avenae) in wheat by using higher doses of fertilizers and spray of zinc, urea and kinetin (a growth regulator). Experiment was conducted for two years (2015 and 2016) in the screen house of Department of Nematology, CCS HAU, Hisar. Materials and Methods: All recommended fertilizers were applied at the time of sowing except nitrogen (urea) which was applied in two split doses i.e., at sowing and 30 days after sowing. Foliar sprays of urea (2.5%)+Zn (0.5%) and kinetin (100 ppm) were applied after 30 and 40 days after sowing in different combinations. Results: The maximum plant growth parameters i.e., plant height (73.8 cm) and plant weight (11.59 g) were observed in the recommended dose of fertilizers combined with urea (2.5%)+Zn (0.5%) spray 30 days after sowing followed by kinetin (100 ppm) spray 40 days after sowing. The nematode population i.e., no. of cyst/pot (152.5) was significantly reduced in 30% higher dose of fertilizers as compared to control. Conclusion: The present study has shown that the foliar spray of urea, zinc and kinetin has significant impact on plant growth and compensate the damage of cereal cyst nematode by adding different foliar spray as compared to infested control.
