Rice-wheat Response to Integrated Nutrient Management With Special Emphasis on Zinc Fertilization

M. Yaseen, T. Hussain, A. Hakeem and Nasir Mahmood

Abstract

Data on rice crop showed that yield and yield contributing parameters were significantly affected by various nutrient combinations and sources. NPK + GM + ZnSO4 gave the best results. It was followed by NPK + FYM + ZnSO4 while without GM or FYM, Zn-chelate performed better than ZnSO4. Foliar spray of ZnSO4 was found inferior among all the sources and methods of zinc application. Grain yield of follow-up wheat crop was statistically similar in all the fertilizer combinations, however, straw yield was maximum where FYM or GM were applied in addition to ZnSO4 to the previous rice crops.
